The Statement of the Problem. What are the social needs in Piney Point? The problem under consideration in this study is an effort to determine what social needs; housing, education, health, recreation, economic safety, religion, aesthetics, and leadership are in this particular community.
For the purpose of complete clarity, it is probably desirable that it be stated that certain problems generally connected with communities are not found In this community. For Instance, since the community is entirely inhabited by Negroes, there is no racial problem and likewise, since it is not corporated but is a sub-division of metropolitan Houston, the problem of political government here, has no significance.
It is felt that the social needs and interests of any community may to a large extent indicate the progressiveness of such a community. If the needs and interests of a community conform to certain principles and set standards as outlined by authorities In the field of community planning, it Is reasonable to assume that all things being equal, that a community will be progressive.
