.....Oh, how times have changed. Once a BEAUTIFUL complex in the heart of the "Floral Paradise of Ohio" (Delhi) the Delshire Apartments are fading fast. Having grown up there, and still visit friends quite frequently, it's sad to see a formerly wonderful community turning into... this. Current problems stem directly from the management company that purchased the property several years ago, and got the "flood" of 2002. Their response? Delay, deny, deceive. Watch us whip that "act of God" clause out faster than you can say, "amoral". After that, all "expensive" maintenance has permanently ceased. Present owners and proxy staff are VERY obviously just milking every penny out of here until closed / condemned / collapsed for good. The horrible contrast is, the *former* team was terrific! John & Linda were like part of the family. Now semi-retired, they can only watch helplessly from the sidelines as our apartment homes fall apart. The only positive comment? Fast eviction timess for problem tenants still work, but building appearance is attracting "them" faster than "they" can be moved out. You know the type- shaved head, goatee, "West Side Choppers" sweatshirt, rusty Honda Civic, etc... Constant stream of "guests" quietly coming and going, all hours of day & night... Hmmm, what do YOU do for a living?
Oh, well. At least this provides the local Narcotics / Stolen Goods squad a constant source of steady caseload. It will interesting to see if the next threat of closure from the township will spur yet another attempt to spray another new coat of paint temporarily on- But, I doubt it.
Pros: Best grade school in the WORLD right next door!
Cons: Current robotic staff doesn't care anymore.
