I am concerned about the increased visibility of vagrants. Individuals that when the weather is nice approach you trying to ask for money. Sometimes they need medication and you have to be careful.

I love living in the area that i am in, i used to live in the suburbs and its interesting being in a very busy community. I love seeing the many different types people that walk around on the street all the time. The diversity is amazing.
I could very well never leave this area. Convenience is everything to me and you can get to any service needed with in a 1 mile radius. Clean and well maintained.
