My family live on Odin Ave. and I have very few issues, but I feel they are important. There is a house next to my home and across the street from my house that drag my property value. We have a house that does not mow the lawn or upkeep the property. We have a person that is constantly hammering and cutting on scrap he drags into his driveway. The other issue is the number of broke down cars on our street. I am not sure why these vehicles are not ticketed, I am not sure why there is not more nuisance citations given for eyes sores, and I am not sure why there is not someone doing something about noise ordnance. I should not have to worry about retaliation for constantly reporting these issues.

Have been a resident in Kennedy Heights for about 8 months now. This small community is the definition of "Up and Coming". There are multiple properties all throughout that are getting flipped and sold for major profit. Hopefully the growth will keep making it's way down Montgomery Rd. from Pleasant Ridge and extend into Kennedy Heights. Overall it is close to everything. You get the luxury of being a stones throw from Oakley/Hyde Park/Pleasant Ridge but paying a fraction of what those houses cost (for the time being). I'm interested to see Kennedy Heights grow over the next 5-8yrs. I can say that I am happy I decided to buy in this neighborhood.
I have lived here for about 6 months now and have to say it is better than I expected. It is close to everything such as grocery stores, the mall, Oakley, and Hyde Park. It is also just far enough away from downtown to still be close.
