If you blink, you’ll miss it. That’s how easily Waldorf, Maryland—a city of nearly twenty-six thousand residents ("Waldorf, Maryland") is driven through. There are many shopping centers and restaurants, as well as continuous construction to provide more of the same. This caters to the median age range of 32.8 ("Waldorf, Maryland"), however it does not provide for the needs of the city’s young adults. Growing up in Waldorf, I’ve experienced that beyond shopping, walking through neighborhoods, and taking in a movie; there is very little else offered here for those leaving or graduated from high school. There should be $12,000 allocated to building more entertainment facilities for Waldorf’s youth because this will increase city revenue and foster social growth as a way to revitalize the city and reduce juvenile delinquency.
I propose that there be a $12,000 stipend allocated to the building of entertainment facilities to deter young adults from criminal activities, and instead encourage them to participate in activities that would prevent this problem. This stipend would stem from revenue already included in Charles County property tax, which goes towards the maintenance of land and current businesses. I’ve chosen $12,000 to cover the starting costs to build at least three businesses to return revenue to the city: Dave & Buster’s, the YMCA, and a local skate park. According to the Charles County Government, it would cost $1,805 each for the application for growth ("Charles County Government" ). Additionally, it would cost $1,203 each for architectural and design planning of these businesses ("Charles County Government" ). Coupled with construction costs, and fees...

...urrent businesses in place are not enough to put our city on the map, or to interest its youth. I urge our community to step forward, and our city officials to regard this with care. My proposal is best for the community as it does not require changes to current buildings, but instead encourages entirely new businesses to revive a wary group of consumers, and protect our youth from starting down a dangerous path. How else can we ever get the weatherman to list our city on the map?

- Throughout the United States sports has taken the consumer captive, by providing them with entertainment and pleasure. Sporting venues continues to rob their loyal fans by boosting the prices of tickets, merchandise, food, and beverages. Recently over the summer, I went to see a baseball game being held at Dodgers Stadium and was horrified at the prices that I saw. My ticket alone was $40, at this price that put me just below the nosebleed section of the stadium. During the game I went to one of the vendors and was flabbergasted to see the price for a hot dog was $6.50 dollars, a drink was $3.75 and a side of fries for $4.25....

- “You are a product of your environment. So choose the environment that will best develop you toward your objective.” (Stone, 1962) The words stated prior by William Clement Stone have never proved to be more accurate.

Depending on a person’s environment, they can succeed or fail; linger around or progress. The further proceedings do not serve the purpose to “knock” or bring shame or favor to one geographical area.... [tags: Maryland vs. Texas]

- INTRODUCTION In observing the landscape of urban core development today, our thoughts reflect on a time when central cities were the primary place for large populations. Central cities or Central Business Districts (CBD) consisted of the employment centers (factories and manufacturing), public shopping, and entertainment venues that attracted the majority of the workforce population during the period of the last 1800s through the late 1930s. Being in close proximity (most times walking distance) to these employment centers, (via electric streetcar or horse drawn buggy) made the decision of establishing residency easy for a deprived workforce....

- Although I realize your concern, you have missed the point of this well thought out essay completely. Despite what you may think about A Modest Proposal by Jonathan Swift, this essay is a satire master piece filled with irony. Swift’s essay was not intended to convince people to eat babies, but to call attention to the abuses Catholic’s face from their well-to-do Protestants. He only uses eating babies in his essay to explain to the reader the impossible burdens the Protestants are imposing on the Irish Catholics and by making their life hard, they are making a life of a new born impossible....
