Five More Reasons To Have Schools in Your City

This is what happens when you mix uses and have education / schools in the central business district and retail areas of your city.

  1. The kids see the community and economy at work - not like being stuck in a yellow field in Canning Vale.
  2. The community and economy gets more people within their realm - that's good.
  3. The bonds between the local retail community and the growing population increase.
  4. The place becomes safer as kids and retailers get to know each other.
  5. Hey look - they're walking around.
