My family has lived in the area for the past eighteen years and there has never been a worry about the crime in the area getting out of hand because there does not seem to be much of any criminal activity. My biggest concern is about the safety of walking around in some areas of the neighborhood simply because of the lack of a sidewalk but otherwise the safety is pretty intact. If there were any emergencies, the police are easily accessible and there is a fire station located within the neighborhood that is very active with neighborhood activities.

It is bad, but it is still home. I grew up in this community and when I become a successful leader I will always come back and support my community in all aspects of life. Yes there are a lot of children who are not motivated to attend school, however, I believe there school be more community events that promote education, scholarship, and creativity. I also see that my community is being torn down because of incoming transportation routes. Although, this is a great way to add to the community it also decreases the value of homes. I just want the best for my community and the wonder families living in it.
The neighborhood is overall cleanly and safe to walk around at many hours of the day and night. The area in itself is pretty good for growing plants outdoors with the soil inside each lot and many of the neighbors take part in tending to their yards so that they remain tidy. Public transportation in the neighborhood is highly accessible, with four-five different bus stops within a five minute walk of each other and all going in different directions that can lead travelers to the city.
