‘This is unfortunately a common theme and is common in the neighborhood and residents fear for their safety.
‘I even avoid walking near the area and always take a bus or other route if needed, because the amount of paraphernalia and drug addicts is incredible.
‘Will the municipality finally take action and do something to make the residents feel safe and in their own neighborhood again? It’s frustrating.’
