There aren't any sidewalks in my particular neighborhood, which is pretty inconvenient as a runner. Other than that, the city in general is very nice and clean. There's a vigilant police force that is close with many members of the community. There are several areas like the one near Adam's Dairy Road that contain a plethora of shops and restaurants next to one another that makes walking between them easy. It's also not too far from downtown Kansas City, (only about fifteen minutes) which also hosts plenty of museums, restaurants, bars, and shopping opportunities.

The school district is academically hard and involved with the community which I highly value. The population consisted of middle-class families until Kansas City raised their rent, and the inner city residents migrated to Blue Springs. I would change the motels that are on the outer road. Woods Chapel area is notorious for the drug trafficking motels. While growing up, I was not scared of walking alone in the dark but now I am frightful of what could happen.
In my experience as a student in the district, I have had teachers from multiple different schools say that “bullying is not tolerated,” yet they allow it to occur: when faced with the circumstances, they do no punish the offenders. I have had meetings with the Chairmen of the Board of Education in Blue Springs and nothing in my situation was fixed; and I was forced to switch to a private school, which lacks the funding and resources from the Department of Education.
