Learning From South Phoenix




Dear Residents of South Phoenix,


As I am sure you are all well aware, there are monumental changes occurring daily in your city by the mountain.  I am also quite sure there are those of you who wish for the newcomers to go away and leave well enough alone.  By the same token, I believe that there are others who welcome the new residents and businesses as a means of rejuvenating.  The biggest trick is to figure out which side of the dilemma you belong on.  Once you figure that out, the next step is to fight for what you believe in.  To chose how you want the city in which you will raise your children in is a very important factor. 

If you embrace the changes with open arms, will you be making the city a safer place for your little ones?  With the new businesses, will they become less safe due to higher traffic, thus increasing their chances of being hit by a car or abducted?  If you leave things as is, will they be less safe because of higher crime rates?  This is a multifaceted issue, and one that will not go away on its own. 

If you want to shape South Phoenix to what you want, you must take an active role in its future.  Go to Town Hall meetings; talk to your politicians and the city planners.  If you do not do this, you will simply be along for the ride, so to speak. 

Are you ready to take the challenge?
