Sinking very fast

Have lived here 24 years. Was very nice then. Now, there is a homeless and drug problem. The city can't or wont solve it. Crime is rising rapidly. Was a crime victim 4 times in September 2019. Theft, vandalism, and car break ins. The police tell you to fill out an online form and call your insurance company. So you suffer a loss, then make a claim, pay your deductible, and watch your insurance rates climb. It is a city of have and have nots. If you are into wines, it is a great place. The expensive wines ($80 plus/bottle) and dinners ($40/plate) is for the rich people. The rest of us, there isn't much here. And home prices for 1500 square foot are $375,000.00 at minimum. Schools are better than most in Oregon, but Oregon is 48th in the nation. Politically it is a blue state, county, and city. If you are conservative, you really don't fit in here, and the opposition is vocal. All in all, what once was a great place has fallen from grace. As I'm close to retirement, I have to tough it out. Otherwise, I would have moved 5 years ago.

Homeless and transients are increasing

I just moved from McMinnville due to the increase in homeless people and crime. The city does not know what to do and there are large loopholes in local laws which allow RVs, buses, cars to park for days at a time in any one area and ruin neighborhoods. I cannot recommend moving to the city.
