Hey everyone,

Just thought I'd post in this group as I'm very curious as to what makes you all so confident in the economic indicators for South Bend. 

Its population has declined in the past twenty years (although has stabilised over the past ten or so). Jobs also stable but no big influx or big decrease - I'd like to know why everyone seems very bullish on the area given it's relatively high crime etc.

Any local knowledge or insights would be great.
