LEAVING the Burbs and making a home within inner city...Why? ABC had a SPECIAL REPORT...
Folks simply cannot afford to live in the Burbs...so...they're coming on back...
1) Job Loss
2) Fuel cost communting to job
3) Property Value loss due to FORECLOSURES...homes are actually worth LESS than OWED!
With that...the ABC Special went on to say...Burbs may very well become a "Ghost Town" like atomospere.
I say...this is good news...IF this actually will happen in Toledo...for me...I believe the inner city will grow for the mere fact the homes are affordable to folks whose earnings are $25,000 per year...it's actually cheaper than RENT for them...but, how do we improve the school system...as that is one of the REAL issues at hand as to why the Burbs grew and our city slowly started it's decent into...I will never believe folks moved to the Burbs because of anything regarding racial divide.
My comment on this...I reside within the inner city...it's affordable for me...it has enabled me to have perks such as Private School for my daughter, vacations, and much much more...where as many I know had all in their homes and could not afford a DVD Rental for recreation as they resided in the "BURBS".
I honestly believe we will see the inner city grow...truly a GREAT growth IF Toledo Public Schools could improve, IF the Marina Distric does materialize (this morning on the radio I heard "Dillon" said the deal may be dead as "Szollosi" insists on "Union" to build)...created by MARIELORA on Jun 18, 2008 at 12:28:34 pm
