I think I know the neighborhood's demographics, and have more insight on the area than you.

I do want to say that relative to the people who live immediately around the Ramada (it will always be the Ramada to me), the people who live in the hotel are, indeed, wealthy. The area around the hotel is working class because there are people who live there who have jobs. Probably very low-paying, but labor-intensive, jobs that leave no money or energy to put towards "curb appeal" - and therefore contributes to the "old and tired" look the neighborhood has.

I just think it's arrogant and shows an entitlement mentality to demand these people do more with their homes just so people living in the Ramada will have a nice view out of their windows. That's what the gripes of the Ramada dwellers sound like to me. If these people don't want to come across as arrogant and entitled, then they need to stop saying things in an arrogant and entitled way. Point blank period.
Yep, evolution & improvement in an area can be tough.... Sux, don't it?

This is about so much more than the view from the windows of those who live in The Brio.

Nobody is demanding anything of the residents who live in this neighborhood, but I think most people would like to see that area cleaned up. Nobody is asking the people who own those homes to remodel them into luxurious dream homes, but keeping the property clean, respectable, and relatively well-maintained isn't too much to ask. The idea behind the master plan is to revitalize the area, and hopefully instill some neighborhood pride in those who have long neglected it.

Anyone who can afford to own a home there can do some simple upkeep, refrain from damaging their own property and the property of their neighbors, refrain from engaging in illegal activity, and have a general respect for themselves and their neighborhood. Do you think that's too much to ask?!?

And then some of you newcomers have the nerve to wonder why the natives don't like you? How laughable.
Please explain to me how someone who sits in front of their house all day long, every day, drinking beer in their front yard is part of the "working class"? If they're working class, I'm in the wrong career field.

Does anyone have any contact info for the HOA at the Brio? I rep a commercial landscape company (Exceed Greenville) and would love to reach out and see who they use for maintenance and if they would be interested in trying another company. The building is beautiful but the grounds look like they could use a little more TLC.

Their property management company is AMG in Simpsonville. It may be a place to start. I hope this helps.
