OpEd: My Reseda
By Alexi Chidbachian
You hear the name Reseda and may automatically think of gangs, homeless people, and a barren boring place but gradually the once-happy city of Reseda is changing. Reseda was once a lively, safe, family raising city but over the years it dramatically decreased in quality.
The city of 91335 has become abundant in gangs and homeless people causing a rise in crime. Not only are the gangs and homeless on main busy city streets but they have now moved into residential living areas. Fortunately in the late 2000’s Reseda started improving. Safety regulations have been enforced throughout the entire city.
The police station on Vanowen St. and Wilbur Ave. have contributed to a great decrease in crimes, making residents feel safer. Policemen have also asking wandering homeless in residential areas to leave. All these safety actions have made Reseda a better place to live; restoring it to its old beautiful lively self.
Reseda has wonderful inexpensive homes for families, great schools, parks, gyms, and libraries; there’s no reason why any one wouldn’t want to live in the rapidly improving city of Reseda, California.
