  1. Van Ry Blvd … who would want to move in Terrace Stations apts with all the crime? There is a child care center there … where is the security / surveillance? Zeek’s Pizzza recently vandalize4d. Going ghetto real fast!!

    1. Christine it’s been a questionable area for the past 2-3 of years at least (Mr. Van Ry should be honored to have such a delightful area bear his name). The Studio 6 contributes its fair share of calls (although in the past month they’ve been quiet) and the construction sites have been hotbeds of thefts and prowls. Lots of homeless and drug dealing going on here too, taking advantage of the city/county boundaries which probably is one reason law enforcement has a tough time keeping order here. The creek flowing through the area is just littered with evidence of illegal activity.

      You’re right though, who’d want to live here or send their kids to the Montessori School? Frankly, once the light rail station opens up this will only get worse (but it’ll be a field day for those looking for catalytic converters or engaging in car prowls).

  2. They shouldn’t allow business licenses to hotels in that area AT ALL! The tax revenue can’t be worth it. Kick them out asap The crimes and associated vandalism, drugs, etc. is endless and a waste of police rescources.
