My experience with this town has been alright. The school systems put in place are sustaining a high graduate rate, while having the good old “rivalry” sports games. Keeping a community together by supporting the high school students that are participating in those various games. There is not a variety of food places, movie theaters, or shopping centers which means you see the same style of clothing everywhere. Because there is no type of variety/unique qualities that would make a person stand out from the crowd. I would like to change the bland feel of Pine Bluff. There are no decent activities for people to participate in except for parties. But it still remains the same down-to-earth feel.

To some people Pine Bluff, AR is the worst place to live. Well, I’ve lived here all my live and I don’t think it’s nearly as bad as people make it out to be. True, there isn’t much for the youth to do, but with the new businesses and downtown prospering, I think Pine Bluff will be striving in due time!
Pine Bluff is very much on the upcoming. Programs, such as Summer Youth Employment Program (SYEP) are, helping the youth advance and mature, while preparing us for approaching years. The city is establishing a solid foundation so that all that is built on it, will not fall apart.
