My hometown is a small town located in Jiangsu Providence, China. Ten years ago, many roads were narrow and some even got/became muddy when it rained. However, many of these streets have been broadened since then, and lots of citizens have (citizens is plural, so we will have noun verb agreement) moved from small houses they built themselves long ago to tall buildings (we could add more information such as the location of these buildings or what kind of buildings they are, for example: -- tall buildings in massive apartment complexes), which is cool. Years ago, people often went to the supermarket (or local street markets?) to do their shopping, but now, large shopping centers have been built where we can get delicious food, watch the latest movies, buy beautiful clothes, and so on.
Great work! Your details really bring the area you are describing to life and emphasize the changes that have happened :)
