(1b) As requested by the citizens of this Neighborhood, per the Neighborhood Constitution, this Neighborhood council must, once-yearly, in perpetuity, provide a report on the state of our Neighborhood economy.

(3a) Conclusions Concerning the State of the Economy After Analysis of the Number of Subway restaurants in this Neighborhood

(3b) Despite a robust population of 51 persons in this Neighborhood, we only have three Subway Restaurants. Since 1977 we have enjoyed a linear growth in our Neighborhood economy, peaking in 2007. However, for unclear reasons, our economy has been reduced by 25% in the past 10 years. This was not influenced by fewer Citizens eating at Subway Restaurants because pretty much no one ate there to begin with.

(3c) Therefore: The conclusion of the Committee In Charge Of The Report on the Economic State of this Neighborhood decrees that we need more Subway restaurants.
