Well, Sun Valley is a nice and great neighborhood that you will feel welcome and meet nice people. I have a long time living in Sun Valley since I came to the United States. What I like about Sun Valley is that there are many people from different cultures and the population is big. Also, what I like about Sun Valley is that there are many schools and options you can choose from depending where you live and what you like. On the other hand, what I would changed about my neighborhood, Sun Valley, would be the graffiti polices because many people such as "cholos" write all over the walls or even in people's property. They do not respect and do not care. I care, so this is why I want a change so my neighborhood looks better, clean, and beautiful.

I loved in sun valley for about six years with my parents, little sister and our two dogs. Are neighborhood was mostly frightening. There is always guns shots where kids are, it's is unsafe for people with pets who take there walks when the sunsets and also the streets are not clean. The city needs more attention and care. With change and care sun valley can be a city like Burbank, ca. Sun valley has plenty of potential. Who wouldn't want to change their city for the better. Change can improve everyone's safety and better schools and the future.
Sun Valley is an up and coming community. More people are moving here and starting businesses. I would like to see better roads!
