So I live in a fairly quiet little neighborhood in Mentor Ohio. Middle class nothing too pretentious – but we’re not parking cars on blocks on our street either.
For the most part our neighbors keep up their yards and houses – like I said – there are no homeowner association police telling you what color your door has to be or measuring your lawn height. Of course you have your eccentric here and there – the cat lady who never opens her door and has let the trees in her place go crazy – but she occupied the house so you cut her some slack.
On the other hand – we’ve got one character who – I guess – bought a place on our street three years ago with the intent of flipping it and has not achieved a whole lot toward that goal. County records indicate that the owner of this property is a Russel Powell – who I believe is connected to Powell Remodeling here in Mentor.
Pretty ironic considering the most run down and dilapidated property on our street is owned by this guy. I posted the following pics to the remodeling businesses’ Facebook page.
Well this resulted in the only real movement on this property in a long time.
Of course this guy doesn’t live in this place – he couldn’t it’s uninhabitable – but I guess that’s okay because – well, he doesn’t live in the place.
