Druid Hills South Reviews

If Charlotte could get their school system to be more diverse, the city would be a great place to live. I would also like to see more affordable housing for residents in the area because it seems like the urban areas are now coming into high demand, and the poor are getting pushed out to other areas, or the streets.

What I don't like about Charlotte is the police presence in the nicer areas is highly visible, but in the poorer areas, there's not enough patrolling, and they are typically invisible. A crime in Ballantyne would get more attention than a crime on my street would.
