Why does the neighborhood look worse than it did in 1980 when I fled from my home at 1580 Xenia? It wasn't safe then and seems even less safe

Briefly and locally, the neighborhood is in close proximity to Colfax which has been in deterioration since I-70 bypassed it in the late 50's. On a macro scale, Wages in the US have been stagnant relative to inflation since about the early 70's. You are seeing neighborhood deterioration to various extents throughout
America. You can research my remarks for your self, but I believe a case needs to be made for a mean of wages to increase, and the tax burden on the public to be diminished so more people can afford homes, and be able to maintain them. http://www.holbenhomes.com

This is not a question Realtors can answer. It is no different than talking about religion, ethnicity, schools ect... sorry. There are plenty of Colfax communtiy associatons you can join to get informed.

Wow. I'm sorry you feel that way. I've been here 15 years and had no problems with safety. I'm glad you're alive too, but I'm not sure you were here when all the renovation on Lowry occurred. It's really turned the area into a fun, diverse community.
