Officials: Students key to watches

City leaders and neighborhood watchers in the College View and Tar River historic housing districts began working on a plan this week to better combat off-campus crime by getting East Carolina University students more engaged in community affairs.

Many ideas were shared during a meeting before the University Neighborhood Revitalization Workgroup, a committee appointed by the Greenville City Council to study how to improve the safety and appeal of 200 acres of homes bordering ECU’s northern boundaries.


But it was enhanced street lighting and increased communication among homeowners, renters and landlords that won over a proposal to install more pan-and-zoom surveillance cameras in residential areas, which in some cases could be a violation of U.S. privacy laws.

Fungoids?

Okay, let's talk definitions. The much overused--mostly by propagandists (liars) word 'disingenuous' means 'untrue' or 'lying.' Where on the TRUNA website is anybody called a fungoid? It isn't there. Oh, wait a minute, it's under the tribal magic secret society Seal of Invisibility--right. So, LJac, you are disingenuous in your assertion. Nobody expects the students to go away. TRUNA just wants to keep the neighborhood from turning into a slum. You can go on believing 'disingenuous' people who promise you something they are not going to deliver, or maybe you are one of the greedy few who want to make a fast buck on a neighborhood's decline. Either way, the new student complex on Reade Circle will likely make all of this obsolete very soon.

TRUNA's called students "Fungoids" on their website. Disparaging

So now.... truna wants student neighborhood residents as their workforce? The same 80% of the actual residents they block do not allow to be full voting members of the neighborhood association? TALK ABOUT DISINGENUOUS. Truna... is the same handful of academic elitists who until recently referred to students in their mission statement, on their website as something less than human, "Fungoids." The same group of academic elitists who set up their bylaws to prevent anyone from joining Truna and voting on neighborhood issues unless they can prove they have lived their for over 4 years?... The neighborhood has been majority student and rentors since the 1970's. Yet, instead of embracing their residents, this handful of academic elitists set up rules to attempt to force out students from the edge of campus and social engineer the community... which has been a complete failure. So now truna, rentor and students... american citizens are "Fungoids" ...85% of your neighborhood are not good enough to be a part of your organization? ... but you want them as your work force,, and you "can't understand" why those you've disenfranchised and so overtly look down your nose, would not want to be your cheap labor?.... NO THANKS Truna.
