Category: Strong Neighborhoods

Strong neighborhoods have good communications, maintain supportive networks, and are self-organizing and resilient. They are safe and friendly. They plan together to build strong schools, shared parks, walkable access to shopping and medical care, and welcoming to all generations and diverse ethnic populations.

Far from being a utopian vision of the past, strong neighborhoods are the basis of today’s strong towns. The places everyone wants to live and no one wants to leave. 

The posts in this category discuss the characteristics of strong neighborhoods and how they got that way.
