On the upswing, Roosevelt is a fine high school. City of San antonio recently added the area to annexation plans so that's very good news for the area.

The only streets I would live on in there are Brecon and Winsford (townhones, not duplexes), anything else off the main street are still super sketchy, including Mallow

If you're talking about Camelot II, I'm surprised no one mentioned the ugly TRASH problem that has been out there for years. Just very recently, the city and county (to finally clean up the trash) and CPS (to help with better street lighting, esp for kids walking to school in the dark) are getting the area in better shape. Good article and a picture about this today Dec 4th in SA Exp-News by Josh Brodesky, Page A13. But the trash pick-up ain't free. To quote the E-N: "For the next three years, the city will provide trash service....Residents will pay $27.67 a month for the service." I can't tell from maps which area is Camelot II, or Camelot I if that's what the first one is called. Maybe one of them is the area North of Walzem that has the Windcrest golf course, and the other one is the area South of Walzem that has Roosevelt H.S.?

Camelot I are the streets surrounding Roosevelt high school between walzem and eisenhauer. Camelot II is farther to the east quite a bit, off Montgomery road directly south of Montgomery elementary. North of walzem is the independent city of windcrest.

Camelot II is Winsford and all the streets that branch off it, Camelot I/Scottswood is New World and Ray Bon (between Walzem & Eisenhauer).
Camelot II is in the county, I is not, and the difference is VERY apparent

I own 4 properties in Camelot II. I bought 2 last April and 2 back in 2014. The area has improved, but more needs to be done. The 4 I own are well maintained by the renters who have renewed their leases. Before the last 2 were occupied, they had both had windows broken with rocks. Nothing has occurred since. I just drove through there today and noted several previously unoccupied properties that I looked at last year have now been rehabbed and are occupied. There were a couple across the street that had been damaged by fire and am not sure, but think they will probably be torn down, hopefully soon or bought and rehabbed. I have spoken with neighbors near my homes and they had both lived there for over 40 years and had no intention of moving. They also said that at least in their blocks neighbors watch out for each other. Overall, I have noted an improvement in the last 2 years. Property values are also increasing. The area now has regular garbage pickup.

I have lived very close to the area you mention. About one block at most. For three years now

I hear gunshots almost every night. I am now used to them and they no longer scare me. At first I would be on my porch and run inside afraid when I would hear them. Nope not anymore. Hear then so often its a normal part of life here now.

Sure that Sounds like something you want?
