The daily dose of a Daily Prompt by the Daily Post.
What do you love most about the city / town / place that you live in? What do you like the least about it? If you were mayor, what would be the most important problem you’d tackle? How would you tackle it?
Photographers, artists, poets: show us CIVILIZATION.
Living in the metro has a lot of ups and downs. One of the ups is that we get to live near a mall, church, airport, hospital and everything in between unlike in rural areas where you have to travel for minutes (even hours) just to get someplace. There’s also a lot of people to meet in the city. However I really don’t like the idea that in my city, there’s a mall in every 5 minutes of travel and that the traffic is so jammed at night; that there is a lot of less privileged people living here and that they’re occupying places that are really not legal to put houses on (like creeks). That in our subdivision, these people make noises outside (especially at night!) which we find irritating and sometimes you’ll just hear some people fighting which is scary.
As a mayor, if ever I be one I’d probably try and stop construction of malls, I mean two or three malls I think is enough, not six. But the most important thing would probably dealing with the less privileged people. Try to find a place to relocate them and give them jobs, that way they would not just go around and do nothing. I always wonder about this building situated beside a highway here because I think it’s a good relocation place for those people, just have to do some reconstruction and maintenance, but it’s just sitting there with nobody using it. Why not use it for them? I think the city government could pay enough for that. Or if possible, offer them go to rural places because personally, I think they’re life would be better there. Instead of wondering where to get food everyday, they could live peacefully on provinces where the cost of living is not that big. Anyone could make a living there and it may not be much but it’s better be something than nothing.
