Hanover Blvd residents are seeing some positive changes in their neighborhood after a WWII veteran was beaten in broad daylight.
The neighbors believed restoring a broken fence could help lessen the amount of troublemakers passing thru. As of May 10th, the fence was restored.
When we originally aired the story on May 4th, 2016 residents were fearful for their lives but with the fence being restored, they told ABC 17 that they can now sleep safely.
ABC 17 has been trying to get in contact with the property management team since last Wednesday and on May 10th, they were able to get back to me saying they, “take this very seriously…and want to make sure their residents feel safe.”
The property management company released an official statement to ABC 17 saying, ” The property management team continues to work with the residents, community and law enforcement to develop a neighborhood watch program that all residents will have an opportunity to take an active role.”
Residents say, “I feel so much safer, I knew Hanover would take care of us eventually but it just seemed like it wasn’t getting done.”
Some residents say they were impressed to see management respond so quickly after the story aired, they told ABC 17 that it shows they were concerned about their neighborhood safety.
ABC 17 had a viewer contact the newsroom immediately after the story aired to lend his services to make sure the residents felt safe. Tonight, the residents told me they were very thankful.
