  1. Actually, I think the quality of life in the neighborhood is pretty good, but in terms of equity I would like to see a ranking of public amenities per capita. It probably wouldn’t look anything like that ranking.

  2. we need to keep that in mind when working with the city to build more greenspace and amenities that this area of town deserves.
