2) "The sidewalks. I wish they would fix the sidewalks. They're ankle breakers. I feel like I need rappelling gear to walk down the street." — Shannon M. Turner, manager of programs and services at Alternate Roots

5) "More affordable housing. Everyone wants to live in a walkable place close to transportation, but no one can afford it." — Nicole Cromartie, 31, coordinator of interpretation for a local museum
