"Newer homes are in the southeastern quarter - live there"

Roosevelt lies in the heart of Fresno county, nestled in between Highway 180 and Highway 99. The district is relatively flat with a wide range of incomes. Thus, making it a diverse cultural area with a varied population (of around 110,000). Residents here are largely hispanic while the minority consist of white, asian and mixed raced people. However, the population has a large degree of blue collar worker, usually commuting to the greater Fresno area.

The district, which is largely residential, is mixed between old and new neighborhoods. The newer (and quite frankly best place to live in this area) places are marked in the southeastern quarter of the district. These communities are complete with two story homes, quaint stucco house fronts, two car garages and beautiful tree lined streets. However, the rest of the neighborhood doesn’t seem to be catching up. These larger areas are blemished with older one story homes, short front lawns and small gates lining the perimeters of many properties.

Roosevelt’s commercial area is spread out through a myriad of small neighborhood shopping outlets. Typically located on busy corners or intersections, the shopping plazas have everything from department stores, to chain restaurants/stores, to fast food to delis. Yet, there is very little public transportation in this neighborhood with only a railroad stretching along Highway 99.

Fresno Pacific University is one of the communities main attractions among students. It is a Christian liberal arts institution offering bachelors degrees in 28 fields and four advanced degrees. Although, the school has little scholastic reputation outside of Fresno preventing it from thriving in a relatively down economy. Sunnyside Country Club and Village Green Country Club are lessor known attractions within the community, but suffer from poor online reviews.
