Can we build a razor wire fence around it and lock the gates dark 'til dawn. It will make locating the bodies easier.

Private construction

Why do you believe the apartments are going to be low income?

Can someone please name any privately built low income apartments in Richmond County lately?

The cheapest apartment community built recently is the Avalon community and the 1br begins around $650-$700..

The southside is definitely booming when their getting national chains only found in West Augusta, Evans, and Aiken..

dichotomy, you jest; but that

dichotomy, you jest; but that is exactly how housing projects should be managed. One way in and out with secure admission through the gate. The tenant is responsible for anyone they buzz through, and will be kicked out if they, their family, their visitors are up to anything illegal.

Countyman you might have missed the research done last year

The outfit behind this has a long document history of building low income apartments.

Not Projects, just a lot low income Apartments that house Section 8's

In this case the reason given for the Apartment Complex was to house Plant Vogel & Ft. Gordon workers & personnel. Problem is that logic does not hold a water.

BTW: That Rezoning was approved years ago, before the current D6 and D8 commissioners were on board.

LOW INCOME
Unpublished

Low income has become a gateway to high crime. It's unfortunate but check the statistics. The lower the income the higher the crime rates. It's the law of the jungle and only the strong survive.

Moral majority

Its always interesting to hear some takes about crime involving certain places and specific people. I enjoy ID Channel, Cops, and First 48 because you get to see how certain races and people from the north side of the tracks commit the same crimes you guys complain about. It must be nice to have a forum to hide your names and faces and belittle people. I truly wish the Augusta Chronicle would go bankrupt. Nevertheless, I get it! The real racist on this site are the ones that get offended by such degrading opinions about other people and not the ones who make the irresponsible statements like today. Remember, Immorality has no race, no gender, and no address!!

Statistics - fail to bear out your dream world

1st of all this is the real world not a PC-TV drama that picks certain crimes for TV numbers and not to offend some viewers.

In the real world certain cultures, & population groups commit more shootings, robberies, burglaries, car thefts, murders, etc. etc... than others per 1000 members.

But do not take my word for it.
Go check out the statistics compiled by the FBI.
But do so understanding Obama appointed the FBI director, the DOJ AG and etc... so if ain't bunch of Crackers lying, it is their own facts.

http://www.fbi.gov/about-us/cjis/ucr/crime-in-the-u.s/2012/crime-in-the-...

Important note:
Remember certain groups only have a certain percentage of the population. So when a certain culture of much smaller population numbers exceeds those of the larger population, then that is a RED FLAG indicator that segment of the population has issues that must be aggressively addressed.

Countyman, you weren't around

Countyman, you weren't around when Plant Vogtle was first built.

Apartments were built for them too, and then the construction ended and the workers left, and then there were too many vacancies.

So all the leasing restrictions were discontinued, and that started many apartment complexes on the downhill slope.

And the exact same thing WILL happen again.

Corgimom, they are not

Corgimom, they are not building apartments for Vogtle nor are many staying in them. They are bringing their own RVs in and setting up in all the camp sites in Burke County or renting homes throughout Augusta, mainly in Evans and Martinez. They are not many at all staying in good ole Richmond Co.

"Chick-fila-a..... Krispy

"Chick-fila-a..... Krispy Kreme...... Title Pawn.... Discount Cigarette Outlet"

Yeh only the first class stuff for the south end. Looks like Target might go broke before they build that south side store countyman has been teasing us with......you know......the one he started talking about right after the Five Guys.

Glad I didn't lose my taste for Whoppers.......but I see the local armed robber thugs discovered the Burger King over here last night. So now it takes two hands and a .40 cal to handle getting a Whopper without putting your life in danger on the south side. With those apartments coming the employees at Bob's One Stop and the Pumping Station truck stop are going to need to start packing heat.
