    Hi David, I have been looking into moving into Winston Downs after having lived montclsir for 13 years. While driving through the neighborhood I noticed a lot of homes with bars on the windows. What’s up with that? Do people worry about crime that much?

    • Hi Laurie, thanks for the comment — good question.
      In my experience, bars are usually installed by homeowners AFTER they (or a neighbor) had a burglary. Putting up bars is sort of a relic from years past. Today, you’d more likely see the installation of a monitored security system as a reaction to crime. Our neighborhood still has a fair number of original owners, and others who have been here a long time — that may be what you’re seeing.

      Coincidentally, we also lived in Montclair before moving to Winston Downs. I parked car in the driveway (we only had a one-car garage) and it was broken into a couple of times while and stolen once! Most of my immediate neighbors (in Montclair) had been burglarized at one time or another – but we never were. Seems about the same here: most of the crime is vehicle-related, and recently we’re noticing an uptick in burglary, as are most other urban neighborhoods. That being said, there is much better communication between neighbors and neighborhoods, more awareness and better access to information. I posted that crime data after reading a thread on the “Nextdoor” neighborhood info exchange for Washington/Virginia Vale.
