    "The area was good but now it is heavily infected with huge mice. If you walk in the evening or night you will see mice in corners. I am scared to even drop trash at night. The situation on my street, Sheffield, is so bad that mice have gotten into dry walls and heat vents and at night you can hear mice crawling and scratching. Management need to do something soon otherwise the area will be unlivable. Mgmt is improving the external image of the apartments with new paints, playground, etc but not doing anything about mice. You can call for tech and they’ll come and leave sticky mouse catchers but the mice in the area are big and are avoiding eating pills or walking on traps. The rent keeps going up but no improvements for the current residents. On top of that, they are adding indoor washer and dryers. No one wants it! Not only will it make the apts even smaller but you will continue to pay the same rent for square space. Horrible! "
