Affordable Housing Reduces Crime

The link between crime and homelessness is inescapably true. The whole ancient reason for congregating permanently and not migrating was a matter of social security. If living together doesn't produce any, humans had to migrate. If there is an answer to one it is the answer to the other. If affordable housing isn't the answer neither is industrialized incarceration.

Traffic is Worse in YOUR Neighborhood

While it is true that Rome wasn't build in a day, Raleigh have grown a lot faster that most of us have take notice. If we are going to be 'The Great American City' we think we are destined to become, we need to solve our mobility issues.

Transportation and transit are complementary but different concepts.

Gentrification is Repeating the Sins of Our Fathers

Real Estate Opportunities that create losers through predatory practices still cost our community in terms of the human capital wasted when long term residents must leave town to find housing. Leadership that isn't opposed to progress and is willing to make certain that it isn't one a sided opportunity is available locally. 

The  source of persistent poverty isn't a mystery. Our community can do something about the legacy that protract misery. There are two stories to progress. One tell us about successes and the other about exclusions to the franchise.

Affordable Public Transportation is Good Business

Roads, buses, trains and rail systems are investments that cities and states make in the future of the people yet unborn. At some point deliveries may be automated and we need to be a part of the facilitation of human empowerment. 

Since access is the key to real estate values how will we start the planning that needs to be address with the acceleration of Artificial Intelligence, associated automation and related robotics? Can the people of Raleigh take advantage of the opportunities and retain the social fabric of our community?
