Neighborhoods Near USC Having Issues - Kit Smith is Concerned

The thousands of USC students living right downtown mixed in with residential folks is certainly a big issue. There's no perfect solution, but there needs to be significant involvement from the University, the neighborhoods, and the city.

I mention Kit Smith in the headline only because she's a pretty solid advocate for Columbia neighborhoods, and she knows what she's talking about. Friend of the blog and neighborhood advocate, Kathryn Fenner is also quoted, but it sounds like USC patrols have helped in her neighborhood.

Kids are going to do dumb things, but steps can be taken to deal with folks who aren't good neighbors. Hopefully, everyone can try to work together to figure out how to live in diverse neighborhoods and live in harmony.
