What is PoPville?

Yesterday there was some discussion about who we are. I’ve also been asked this question a number of times. Allow me to share my vision. In PoPville we are indeed a diverse community. Diverse in many ways including age, race, sexual orientation, gender etc. We are also a group that embraces who we are. We know what we like and what we don’t like and are happy to debate it intelligently. We are sick of crime. We seek to build community. We volunteer. We hold our politicians accountable. We love food of all varieties. We like to know what development is going on in the city. We appreciate architecture. We are curious about real estate. You are among the most knowledgeable people I’ve ever “met”. We like gardens and some of us like doors. We are curious. We share our good times and our bad times.  We like music, art, film and exploring those options available to us. We are not the arbiters of cool nor do we care to be. We have a sense of humor. We are (mostly) respectful of each other even when we disagree. We have a passion for our neighborhoods. But what really makes us unique is the incredible combination of the attributes above which, I like to think, make up the beautiful life.
