Nashville

Wish it were growing as fast as Charlotte, wish it already had 2 million in its metro, a MLB team, wish it could attract the Superbowl

Minneapolis - the winters. Although if I changed that more people would move here (see Denver, Portland, Seattle and Austin) then it would hurt the very reasons I love it here so much.

Fort Worth

I can't really pick ONE thing, but to do so while covering everything, including transportation, political stance, major urban projects, etc.:

Be a little more progressive than we are at a much FASTER rate.

We're getting there, but it's taking a while...

Maybe , hopefully the deal is not totally dead after all.

Tampa Bay (Bradenton) Florida... Some type of terrain near the city (even within 3 hours is okay) that is significant enough that it provides good mountain type vistas, and alters the climate to the point where it's not unbearable in said area, even during the summer. I know that's kind of a cheat because I picked two, but oh well haha.

I'd like to put in a mountain just outside of OKC so I could go skiing.

Wilmington. I wish we had taller buildings (though a 508 footer has just been approved), more bike lanes, a bike sharing program, and better retail options downtown.

I wish they would have started this renaissance 15 years ago versus now. The city would be a much different place than what it is currently , however things are definitely taking a turn for the better.
