indicators: what does your town value?

You can learn a lot about your town by looking at a few simple indicators.

Are panhandlers allowed to congregate in the heart of your town's commercial district, crowding benches and harassing passers by?

Do school referendums fail while park district referendums pass?

Do drivers yield to you in a crosswalk, or do they zoom by you at speed as you stand in the middle of the road?

I've been looking at these indicators - what additional ones would you add for your hometown? If these three were the only ones used to judge my town, it would be 0 for 3.

My townspeople would rather wake up to you mowing the grass at 7:00am than have said grass be slightly taller that the rough at Augusta National!!!
