I am a fairly new resident of Celtic Park. I moved in over a year ago. I have to be honest. I was very very much looking forward to moving to this “community”; however, I find the property not to be very well maintained considering the high cost of maintenance. Many of the neighbors are not friendly and they don’t seem to respect their surroundings. Cardboard and flags are used as window treatments in many of the windows. Horrible odors in the hallway. Very disappointed and already looking to move out.


Webley, I’d say most people are already aware that in the century since Celtic Park’s sports heyday, there have been new and varied immigrant groups settling in the area. What exactly was your point?
