More Community events would be awesome! We have a quiet community with significant space . It would be wonderful if we could have more city sponsored events year round. Better communication from city hall and our government officials would be great. We have great diversity, and I would love to see our community celebrating this, starting from the top within our city government.

My experience living in the city of Taylor, just down the river from Motor City Detroit, has been quite a journey! My first summer living in the region was met with an intense episode of heavy rain which resulted in major flooding throughout the Detroit metropolitan area. Once I settled into a home of my own, I pleasantly awakened to realize how blessed I am to live in such a strategic area that is immersed in a culture of music, faith, art, and is located right between the city and it's major airport!
In my neighborhood it can be dangerous at times- from people driving far too fast down the street not paying attention, to neighbors watching my house far too close for comfort. It is a very busy city, where many people drive through so it can be a bit crowded. But when it comes to jobs there are far too many to count, with plenty of different options. It is affordable, and safe for the most part.
