I love the fact that Central Falls is so small (literally 1 square mile) and everyone knows each other. In my neighborhood, not only do we look out for one another, but we make sure that if something is off, we tell our neighbors. We have a major named James Diossa. A certain section of central falls was having some troubles with people, stop signs not being up (safety of citizens) and also lack of police control. Not only did Major Diossa met with the citizens of the section of Central Falls, but he listened to the community and their requests! All of the concerns were address and now, everyone is at peace!!! Wow!!! Where else can you find a major so involved in his community that they actually take the time off their busy schedule to sit with the people!!!!!

Throughout my 15 years living here in Central Falls, I have had my ups and downs in my life. Currently, things have been getting better around here, and my quality of life has been well. I no longer have a fear spending time outside with my sisters when we go biking or walk to the Seven Eleven a couple of blocks away. I'll be going to college soon, I believe I'll miss Central Falls because of its tight-knit quarters(it's only one square mile), and of because of all the good memories I have of it even if it was tough at times. I'm glad my mom brought me here because this small city has brought out the best in me by showing me how mylife can turn out if I give up on myself.
Over the last 9 years years in Central Falls, there has been alot of wonderful changes. We have adopted a resrurant week, have opened up many new business that are thriving and have updated and cleaned of our parks. The community has grown and developed into a popular area.
