Bring more life to New Hope with better commute times and more job opportunities for those who live there. The bussing is terrible for people who don't have access to a car, leaving your life limited. Busses run every hour and also stop running early and don't run on weekends. There's not many job opportunities in the area either, it leaves you to rely on Crystal shopping center where most jobs don't pay decently or aren't hiring. There's not many affordable places to have fun either. There's a few bars around but for kids and people who aren't into that scene much there's not much else to offer. There's not even a decent movie theater in the area.

Good living Area, and has plenty of Job opportunities, and good shopping center. And Good Community events like Duck Duck days
Nice affordable homes with reasonable property taxes. Close to downtown Minneapolis wirh nice parks and lakes. Rather safe the further south you are.
