english grammar

I have to submit this paragraph and I am having grammar problems. Can someone help me so that I can correct my mistakes and make a good grade. Here is the paragraph:
My vision of the ideal city is probably similar to what many people would describe as a desirable city. Most importantly, this city has a tremendous amount of opportunity to work and make a good living. There are enough jobs for everyone that is willing to work. The ideal city, to me, has a tropical climate all year long. The cost of living is a good match with the salaries available and the housing is affordable. My ideal city is one that has a population of 60,000-150,000 people. This is desirable to me because I do not want to live in an overcrowded city, but there needs to be enough people to draw in businesses. This model city has excellent healthcare facilities and a goal striving for a healthy population. My idyllic city would have many things to do for all ages. This may in turn lower the crime rate if people have the opportunity to do a variety of positive activities. Some other characteristics of this exemplary city include a growing economy, a favorable government, and a commendable school system. My ideal city can be summed up as one that I consider comfortable and fun.
