West Pensacola is an area of my hometown that could use some major improving. It isn't the worst part of Pensacola but it is far from the best. With the proper focus, time, attention, and financial backing in place with the specific area in mind, I believe it could definetely be a better area in no time.

It's a low income part of town. I haven't witnessed much crime here though and the people and businesses are friendly. Very close to everything!
Access to beautiful beaches, stores and restaurants. Cost of living low. Plenty of housing available.
