Yes if you fix local public schools, clean the streets and improve public safety then people will want to move to an urban neighborhood from the suburbs. If you don't fix those 3 things, not so much. Instead of concentrating all the reources in one area, maybe we should demand that our elected officials deliver similar results for the rest of the city and see what happens.

i feel like if city council & the school district JUST FOCUSED on getting and keeping good teachers and championing family/parent involvement in the schools, the rest comes ... high property values, clean streets, neighbors watching out for neighbors, community gardens. and in many cases, the neighborhoods/streets are getting better despite the overlooked/underfunded/negatively designated schools - i'm looking at you : 46th & kingsessing, 47th & locust, and st. bernard streets.
