What makes a great city? – 1st

Despite the fact that all cities have the same basics, there are some differences that make some cities better than others. I will explain three of these here.

The first aspect of a great city is a good, diverse community. Having different kinds of people brings unique perspectives that allows all people to be served properly.

The second benefit of a good city is the ability to attract visitors. Some of the best cities have preserved history, fancy parks, or one-of-a-kind exhibits.

The final thing great cities have is safe streets. Having citizens that respect their city as well as police and fire departments that work hard to maintain the city are paramount to a great city.

These are just some of the aspects of a great city.Slide5

.

The first aspect of a great city

is a strong community. This means people work together to keep the city safe and achieve common goals.

The second benefit of a great city is transportation and places for people to go and visit. This includes stadiums, malls, and parks. There also should be a transportation system like buses or trains to avoid massive traffic.

The final things great cities have is a safe environment. These include police, fire, hospitals, and a military base.

These are just some aspects of a great city.Slide6

Problems – 1st

Despite the best efforts of city planners, mayors, city councils, and the like, there are still problems in cities. I will explain some of the major problems I see in cities.

First, there is crime. Safety in a city is usually the most important selling point to attract future citizens as well as keeping current citizens.

Secondly, there is a lack of funding for public services. This includes education, parks, police, fire, and libraries.

The final major problem that cities face is overcrowding and lack of appropriate housing. The need for new residential communities is becoming a necessity.

These are just a small sampling of current city problems. Unfortunately, there are many more. Slide7

Problems – 5th

Despite the best efforts of city planners, mayors, city councils, and the like, there are still problems in cities. I will explain some of the major problems I see in cities.

The first issue in cities is crime. City leaders are always looking for ways to make the city safer for their citizens.

The second problem in cities is underfunding for education and healthcare. Citizens need a good education and proper access to good healthcare in order to function properly.

The final problem to address is overcrowding and overpopulation. These problems create a need for more roads and better quality and availability of housing.

This is just a small sampling of the many

problems cities face today.
