Hi Linda,

It appears that you are in charge of the New West Willow Neighborhood Association blog, and I was hoping to speak with you about so many of the wonderful changes that community is embracing currently. I am working on a crime analysis report for the West Willow Neighborhood, and I am interested to hear what community members think. Have programs such as the Summer Camp and Habitat for Humanity reduced crime? What do people think about the limited transportation, and how do they feel about having the buses traverse through the neighborhood? If you wouldn't mind giving me some insight as to where community members feel improvements could be made, it would be appreciated!
