Sprawl Sprawl is when a person moves or lives in a neighborhood where they need a car to get where they need to go they cant walk or take a bus. Things that aren’t good about sprawl are : Lack of parks and farm land More people have to drive People have to depend on cars People have to drive a longer way There is lots more Pollution More energy is wasted Public Health Concern is at a higher rate
Sprawl Results in Urban Disinvestments Disinvestments- Withdrawal of capital investment from a company or country. Many people move to a different city People have to pay more taxes. –There’s more poverty concentration –Socio-economic inequities increase –Farm-land is destroyed and made into Parking lots.

Why are schools considered “Anchors of the Community”? They are considered anchors of the community because they help everyone learn. Not just the kids but the parents also. (the pta meetings)
Fair and Cost-effective Development Strategies The ones I think is are most important are: Smart, efficient decisions Revitalization of depressed areas
Mixed Land Uses Mixed land uses are better than a large single land use because they can be used for other things than just one.
Importance of Preserving Open Space It is important to preserve open space so we could have a place to play and to socialize.
The Advantage of Compact Buildings Compact buildings have the advantage because they can fit more people into one community. When you have more people in the community, the people bring in more money and the community can afford more schools and places to play and relax.
The ware houses should be moved to a different neighborhood then there would be less pollution hardly any at all for better air for the residents.Then Turn the ware houses into rental apartments. The vacant lots and buildings should be turned into new houses And into apartment Buildings for people Who cant afford the houses.And make stores to shop for the residents
Lots of heavy industrial warehouses Lots of open space Mixed residential park industrial neighborhood Weequahic Park contains a large lake, baseball fields, and soccer fields.
What I think should happen with the neighborhood is just to move the Ware houses into another part of the city so that there would be less pollution in that neighborhood and a better living environment for the children I also think that when the ware houses move that they can be turned into rental apartments. The other thing that I think should happen in this neighborhood is the vacant land and buildings should be turned into affordable houses and apartments so that people of both high and low incomes will be able to afford them this way the city and state will make even more money because more people will be paying them. These are the changes that I think should happen with the neighborhood.
