Kanawha City residents say 'Good fences make good neighbors'

East Kanawha Estates residents says good fences make good neighbors.

The area is receiving a new fence thanks to the City of Charleston. The area was the scene of a shooting last month when a police officer was shot in the mouth, but I fail to see how this fence makes anyone safer, nor why the city should pay for it.

I don't live in Kanawha City - so no axe to grind, but I understand why they want the fence and why the City should pay for it.

The City over the years have practiced "spot zoning" so often that there is often no buffer between commercial and residential areas. This is one of those situations. The commercial district, including a truck stop and motel that gets 24 hour traffic, is literally at the back doors of some of the houses in the neighborhood. The fence will at least discourage people from entering the residential area.

I've been wondering exactly why fences were being built over there. Good to know its to enhance neighborliness. The shards of broken bottles on top of the walls will also help.
