Empty Homes in our Neighborhood

You may or may not have noticed that we have several unoccupied homes in our immediate area, and some of these homes are not in a state of good repair, unfortunately. Yesterday, a representative from The Township met with us to discuss what they can do to help preserve our neighborhood. We’re fortunate enough to have a resident living here who is completely versed on all aspects of the problem, such as determining ownership, etc. By following proper channels, we should be seeing improvements soon, and of course, we’re hoping that all of the homes will have owners occupying them and taking care of them. Our home values are tied to the values of our neighbor’s homes as well.

Three representatives from the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office also spoke to us about things we can do to head off any illegal activities centered on these temporarily unoccupied homes. There is some concern about non-residents on bicycles seen in our area on several occasions. These individuals were seen peering in car windows in a suspicious manner. We were urged to call the sheriff’s office if we observe thee individuals again at any time.

I guess this is a good reminder to always keep our vehicles locked and to keep an eye out for strangers and suspicious activity. The weather will be warming up soon, and we’ll soon be seeing even more people out and about. The number to call for non-emergencies is 281-297-6500. If it’s an emergency, of course, call 911.
