I love westlake its fun and very family oriented. Beautiful houses and trees. I want to see more of the houses occupied with people with families.

I do not feel safe in my area due to gang activity and suspicious characters roaming around. I love that the government is taking the initiative to beautify my community, but the safety could use a lot of work.
If it doesn't concern me then I really don't care.
