Anger in col­lege neigh­bour­hood

The Niagara Falls Review - - Local -

I have made nu­mer­ous phone calls, sent nu­mer­ous emails, with pho­tos, con­cern­ing prob­lem prop­er­ties in our area of Wel­land near Ni­a­gara Col­lege.

Sadly, none have been ad­dressed. I have been com­plain­ing for months and years and so have neigh­bours.

We have been in our home 46 years. Our neigh­bour­hood is lovely. But we do have eye­sores and bla­tant messes. We pay high taxes. For what? Eye­sores? Ni­a­gara Col­lege may be a high-end tax­payer but what about us? Sure, the col­lege has been a great ad­di­tion. We have watched it from its in­cep­tion. We have been very in­volved. When we call the col­lege, they get right to it. But, en­forc­ing city by­laws they can­not do.

Will there be pub­lic, all-can­di­dates meet­ings for the mu­nic­i­pal elec­tion where is­sues can be dis­cussed and ques­tions asked?

I am tired of these is­sues be­ing ig­nored in the col­lege neigh­bour­hood. One suc­cess we have had: park­ing. Took a while, but fi­nally re­solved. Am I an­gry? Yes!
