    The problem is that there are too many stray dogs and dogs not in a gate. It is a problem because when I walk home I don’t want to get bit from a dog. I think it needs to be fixed because I don’t want to get rabies from a stray dog.

    In my neighborhood there is trash on the ground and I think that it is wrong.People should learn that the ground is not trash.If people drop trash they are making the neighborhood as a dumpster.And if other people see that, they will think that our neighborhood is being careless.Our neighborhood should take a stand,by at least picking up the trash and being respectful in the neighborhood!!!!!!!!!!

  • Adriana R.

    The main three problems in our community are many people need to recycle.And we also need to be cleaner in our streets.The last thing is we need our community to be sure that the animals don’t dig in our trash cans.

  • shelley v.

    In my neighborhood at night time there’s a lot people that is very loud at that time,so when me and my family sleeps their is lots of noise and i think that it is a wrong thing to do.I think that it needs to be change,so other people can have a good night sleep because probably they will have to wake up early in the morning to go to work or for children who needs to go to school too.I also think that they shouldn’t be very loud at night when it’s very late too because they also need to go to school and when they don’t have a good night sleep get very sleepy in class and then they will probably sleep in class,so they will get in trouble if they get caught while sleeping in class.
