For the sake for an accurate rating I'm considering as "local" those business within walking distance ( less than 1 mile away).

I've selected "it's bad" because all of the 3 businesses I can think of do not have a business parking and those that do, the parking is unsafe and very small. Also, all 3 business are not visually appealing. Trash can be seen in the outside and inside of the locations, 2 of the 3 have a pugnan smell, the regular customers of all 3 shops are disrespectful towards others and you can very easily find poor quality product with high prices.

The employment in this area is poor. The job overview does not show that any business ate growing and based on the living conditions of most people I strongly doubt that most people in this area are receiving much more than minimal wage at their jobs.

One of the job opportunities that I see in this area is a primary school placed in the middle is the neighborhood. If someone was interested in teaching or was interested in any job that involved serving children, that person could potepotentially be happy living in this area.
The area is not so much family or post friendly, due to the fact that there are several main roads that make it difficult to allow children outside and still have peace of mind. If one goes to any of the 2 local parks then, yes, one could say that there is pet/family friendly areas. Also, the community is sensitive to the neighbor's problem. As an example: the community came together one day and decorated a street corner green space in memory of a deceaced member of the community and it was great to see everyone come together and help one family feel better about their loss.
