Everything is relative depending on which place you compare with.
Lehigh is not the best as well as is not the worst in the country. It is just average with some nice area and some bad area.
If you choose to live in a bad area you are in bad area no matter which county you are in. But, if you choose to live in a nice area you can live in paradise! Yes, there is nice area in Lehigh.
One thing for sure is the area keeps on changing. if more nice people move in the area will become better; do not scare nice people away!

If you give up on your neighborhood, it's going to go bad. People have lost that reasoning some time ago. If you don't leave the house, know your neighbors and their kids, go live in a cave! I heard the same remarks about GGE and the grow houses. I still moved in and know all my neighbors and they're out taking strolls daily. The rif-raf sees this and they start going somewhere else. IF you let them propagate, next thing you know they're livin next door to you.

Hardly a night goes by that Lehigh isn't on the news for one violent crime or another. It is becoming worse and worse every day. I almost would rather live in Dunbar than Lehigh (well......almost). It is like a bad joke any more.

If you don't take the advice of everyone who is telling you to run away, you will be very sorry in the future.

It's unfortunate. In Punta Gorda, Port Charlotte and North Port some of the houses are on lots and the investors are buying them and reselling them at very high prices. It's become very difficult for local Floridian to find a house that's worth the value .

I didn't like Lehigh before it was crime ridden.

However, for years I worked with people who wanted a nice family home in a gated community with amenities for under $200,000. 10 years ago it was one of the only places to find a nice, newer home in that price range close enough to jobs in Fort Myers and Naples. (Yes, I worked with people in Naples who commuted from Lehigh)

I'm guessing they're sorry they made that choice.

What caused Lehigh to become so crime ridden? I know,originally, that housing was cheap but don't recall that crime was a problem until more recently.

So many homes went into foreclosure, were picked up at ridiculously low prices out of foreclosure, turned into rentals. You have a neighborhood that is transient, no stability, prime ground for crime.
