Hi all,

From what I have seen, you are all very helpful folks. Nice to see that!

I was hoping that you might be able to give me a little insight into the Sheldon Road area of Tampa. I am looking at renting an apartment at Westwood Reserve and have gotten mixed information from people I know.

The apartments are next to the Carraba's and Outback, across the street from the Mellow Mushroom.

Some folks are telling me it is a very nice area to live, others are saying that it is filled with gangs and drug dealers.

Would any of you live in that area and know about this?

Any help would be greatly appreciated. I am supposed to sign the lease at 9 am tomorrow.

Thanks in advance!

I've lived within 5 miles of there for the past 20+ years. Westwood Reserve is in a good area. The advice you received from others was probably referring to the area further south near Waters & Sheldon which has had problems in the past. And, if you're a shopper, you'll love living close to Citrus Park Drive. Welcome to the area!

It's a wonderful area....I live about two miles from there and have virtually no concerns about day to day safety or drug crime.

As TampaKaren said, you'll love living so close to the mall and all of the amenities.

Default Thank you

Thank you for your posts. I figured the most knowledgeable people would be the ones who live in the area.

I did in fact rent the apartment.
