I have lived in Spring Branch for 18 years. I remember the area struggling with violence and hearing gunshots as a child. While I expected the area to worsen, it has actually improved. The city has taken great measures to improve my neighborhood. I feel safer and the area is nicer. Shopping, food, and schools are nearby as well as three of the major freeways. New real estate and town homes are available for a great price, especially when considering its proximity to downtown Houston.

I grew up in Spring Branch and it was an awesome neighborhood! Respect went a long way. I would like to see the neighborhood kids now days show a little bit more respect towards each other. Respect other people values, opinions, and differences.
I would like this area to improve the communication with the community, I moved here 2 years ago and so far is a calm area, but there is like a racial barrier that separates the hispanic zone with the caucasian zone, I feel that there is work in making the community interact with each other and have mutual involvement, and improve the propaganda of newly open job spots in the area.
