More people are moving downtown everyday, and with more people comes increased safety concerns. Parkview Apartments, on South Fillmore, opened this morning.
One way to alleviate some safety concerns residents say they have is by the developer installing security gates. Along with more residents moving to the area, is a growing homeless population. Amarillo Police say people have the misconception that because the homeless are visible, it's an unsafe place to live, but it isn't nearly as bad as people make it out to be. Sgt. Brent Barbee says "I just looked at the police report and there's been no crimes in the past few weeks. None at all. Not even any burglaries or attempted robberies."
