I would work on trying to make the area more healthy by promoting green roofs, bicycling/walking places, and but better diets.
Safety by educating people how to protect there homes from break-ins, getting guns out of the wrong peoples hands, and lowering the shooting/violence in the area.
Fun by making a place for everyone in the community to go and have the community help make it a great place. If they work on building it, they will less likely destroy it!
Teach the youth what is right and wrong and get rid of DEAD BEAT PARENTS ( just my opinion!)
