Several items of the city’s infrastructure are seen in section 10, including three schools 12 with open space around them as well as a large recreational complex 13 in the southeast. The latter includes a racetrack 14, baseball diamonds 15, and two large buildings 16.

In the east is an area with single-family dwellings that have approaching driveways 19. Three additional schools 20 can be seen in these areas outside section 10.
