Base on what I have seen and read in books spring valley use to be a wonderful community to live in, get an education and raise a family in , but due to the corruption of those in control of the community it has and still is going down the drain. The politician here are more concerned with power rather than bettering the community as a whole. Still don't get me wrong there are still some wonderful part of the community that has not been infected but these are the parts that are closer to neighborhoods such has New City, Suffern, Nyack and Pomona

I would like to see change in the neighborhoods more activities, more after school programs, more wheelchair accessible housing. More friendly activities for people with disabilities. More activities for our senior citizens to do.
I really do enjoy Spring Valley every since I moved in. The Palasades Mall is only 10 - 15 min away and I love that every time I go there are families and young adults just having a great time together. I've been to the DMV and its nothing to what I thought it was going to be. The workers were very helpful they look like they actually enjoyed their jobs. The people are very welcoming as well and very helpful. Spring Valley is my new HOME!
