Change My Community

Tags: Community, Neighborhood

I would change how the neighborhoods are put together. I feel like the people are too far apart to be close to each other as friends. For instance, I have no clue who any of my neighbors are and I wish I did. It would also help in emergencies to know who your neighbors are. I know we can’t reposition our houses but it would be nice if everyone knew who their neighbors were.
