Norwood residents upset with Xavier students living in neighborhood

NORWOOD, OH (FOX19) - Some Norwood residents are upset and pointing fingers at Xavier University students living in their neighborhood.

Some of them say the late night partying of the college students is too much, so they're trying to enlist the university's help.

Cheryl Folley says the quiet Norwood neighborhood she likes to take walks in isn't quiet when Xavier is in session.

"Every Thursday through Sunday you get the anxiety of OK, it's 9 o'clock, when are the parties going to start?" Folley said.

Cheryl's one of a group of people who say their Norwood neighborhood changes when Xavier students return to classes and move into off campus rental houses during the school year.

"When you wake up on Friday and Saturday, there's beer cans all over, there's cups all over, just garbage all over the place, so it's just that lack of respect," said Folley.

Now a grassroots Norwood group wants to stop that. Folley and many others went to the first of a few planned meetings. The focus is letting Xavier administrators hear about the problems neighbors say they have.

 "They've come up with, from what I understand, a plan of action to try and work out any problem they might encounter in that situation there," said Debora Del Valle, director of public relations at Xavier.

The plan includes short and long term ways for residents and the University to work together.

So what do some Xavier students think?

"It's hard because we want to go out and have fun and live this college life, and at the same time we're in this neighborhood where they're raising families," said Natasha Salzl.

Families like Cheryl Folley's.

"I'm glad to finally see someone getting together and hopefully making a decision," Folley said. "And with Xavier's help, I think that's huge."

The neighbors are planning another meeting on Sunday, Nov. 16 at 5 p.m. on Regent Avenue.
