Santa Ana: Identity, Meaning and Purpose

Posted in Downtown, Education, Midtown, Opinion, Santa Ana College, SAUSD, South Coast Metro, The Sentinel Asks, Ward 2, Ward 4, Ward 5 by Omar Ávalos Gallegos on January 9, 2013

Here are some questions addressed citywide.

What is Santa Ana to you?

If you reside here, do you have a sense of purpose, a sense of thinking outside of yourself or whatever comforts you may have? Would you act towards bettering the community as a whole?

What are the needs of the majority?

What do Santa Ana kids need from the education system?

Are you newly arrived to the downtown? If so, what brought you here?

What do you want to see happen in the downtown?

What do you as a newcomer want to see for the rest of the city, beyond the downtown?

It’s said that a city is defined by its downtown, and so I ask longtime Santa Ana homeowners, citywide, what do you want YOUR downtown to be?

Why did William Spurgeon keep the name Santa Ana? Where did he get the name from?
