Southwest


Present Conditions

Physically, this area is of recent enough origin so as to remain relatively stable in character. The population generally maintains its level, with the possibility of a slight increase if more multiple dwellings are built. There is a predominance of persons of German or Slavic descent in the eastern and southern portions of the district. Properties are generally well-maintained and the percentage of home ownership is quite high. Some of the residential areas are rather suburban in character and are obviously inhabited by families of some affluence, making this one of the City's most desirable living areas.
