months have passed since a few neighbors reported the house at 202 North State st. having lefft all of the trash and furniture in a moungtain on the yard near the street , it was there for a month and another neighbor picked it p largely and hauled it away because he didn't want the inspectors coming around. This house has been the open flop for many people and the police are there almost every morning before dawn and many more times at night. The Back windows and door are open and are broken to maintain access, the electricity had been hi jacked until last week when the power company took the meter off again.. The squatters are not just homeless poor souls but some of the felons that have claimed this neighborhood and are doing their selling consistently here . The police can do nothing to shut the house down and the inspectors case being removed is insane. There has not been one day that that house has been secured , it was just sold in a "short sale" and so that means the owner hasn't closed but the bank or WHOEVER owns it needs to BOARD IT UP! This is sickening that no one can keep the neighborhood from going to pot , There should be some mechanism for stopping the people who put the city in decline while not penalizing the people who are working hard to make this place better. Seriously frustrated and disappointed in Raleigh offices and personel who get paid and make it hard on residents to appreciate the services. Once again , my question is what is it going to take for this neighborhood so close to the downtown to be cared for and managed better? This area has a ridiculous amount of crime happening every day, I shouldn't have to remind anyone while a trial for a home invasion is going on. We don't need more guns, we need more responsible care. People need shelter yes,but squatting in a house illegally is not OK .
I'm sitting outside in beautiful Downtown Raleigh. The Crotch Rocket man drives by revs his engine. Everyone stops speaking. Yes he a a jerk with no self-confidence. Clearly a Loser. I was told last week by a RPD Officer, that loud vehicles are not illegal. Can this be true? I'm ready for this to be illegal.

Can someone please come talk to these homeowners regarding ongoing noise coming from their home? They aren't the most friendly people and don't respond well when I ask them to turn down their bass. It travels quite far and through homes several houses down. Calls to Raleigh Police don't meet with much success. The officers just drive down the street to the cul de sac, turn around and drive off. The noise is often during the day, which is outside the noise ordinance hours; but I work nights and this bass keeps waking me up. The loud music from the cars that pull in with the father driving aren't really that great, either.
How is it that it is ok to cut all the trees down on the lot lines in this neighborhood that has already lost so many to the tornado? My back neighbor cut a 150 foot Magnolia yesterday, and today the cutter says he's going to clear all the others left. 2 tall deciduous trees. Now we are exposed to both his full house and the other neighbors parking lot and sheds, and the vale of our property has plummeted! NO SHADE NO PROTECTION from a view of their ugly space. There's no way in the world to plant anything to take the place of an OLD VALUABLE, ESTABLISHED TREE , they have a huge impact on the neighborhood aesthetic and worth as well as the environment. I talked to a COR person in zoning and he said there was only a ruling for percentage of allowable cutting for properties over 2 acres. It should be the other way around! Can't the COR get this right? Stop letting people run roughshod over each other! That includes developers.
There are two women who stand outside a home mid way down this block. I see the same women being dropped off from numerous different vehicles almost every day. High traffic on the weekends on that block of Idlewild. There are also two men that stand on the porch and the most concerning aspect is that children live in the home that they stand in front of. Please help.
