I’ve been a Belmont resident since 1971. My family moved here in this house when I was in the 6th grade. This house has been through four generations. It is home, this is all that I have. Mom and Dad had 11 children, and 8 of them lived at the house. They had only 2 bedrooms and 1 bath, but lots of love. The best thing about the neighborhood is that the crime and drug activity had decreased and some of the homes have been remodeled. The neighborhood has come a long way.

Story: Back in the 70’s and 80’s the neighborhood was one big family, everybody knew each other. We use to sleep outside on the front porch and watch TV outside in the summer.

Action: Help low income families rebuild their homes and to build new affordable homes for low income. More speed bumps in the neighborhood.
