Regardless of age, gender, ethnicity, or income, we can all agree that improvements to our communities benefit everyone. And we all want the same things: safe, accessible and affordable places to live for you and your family, access to the shops, businesses and community services that you interact with every day, and to live near friends, family and people you can rely on.
