SVA is as good or bad as you make it. The grounds are in good shape with a nice field for kids to play. We have a board to make rules and a Mgr. to inforce them Some times Mgr. forgets who makes the rules but as a rule it is a good cheap place to live. I'd move here again. I have few problems hear and a loaded shot gun if someone crosses my threshold and breaks in which has never happed to myself and II would not live here if I felt it unsafe!
I hope this give you some insight to SVA and do find a place you like here.

Zach Lyons answered:
Waterbury is a very large city: parts are very dangerous, other parts are quite nice to live in. I live in a neighborhood that touches Middlebury, a lovely town with old-money residents; it's about a 1-minute drive away. I don't worry about crime. I do think Waterbury taxes are a crime, though! ... more

Laura Feghali answered:
Hello Chinh,
From what I can decipher from the crime report that Trulia has posted; it seems that some residents in the neighborhood called the police regarding suspicious persons or activity in the area. I'm not certain but perhaps there is a "neighborhood watch" system in place.
I suggest that you contact the Wallingford police department to find out first-hand what the crime activity is in the area.

Best wishes!
