Housing and Community

People have different views of defining neighborhood and community. One says community is a network of social interaction and bonding. Cloyne Court Hotel is an example where people interact with each other where they share common interests and interact in some way. There are many aspects that go into a comprehensive plan that develop a community where people get affected from such as demographics, economic factors, land use and zoning, housing and neighborhood quality, infrastructure, government services, visual, cultural, environmental factors, recreation, visions, goals and objectives. Zoning process was an interesting model to understand each step as an owner would go through to change a plan of their house.
Neighborhood satisfaction is influenced by factors such as personal, physical, social, segregation and safety factors. The planned unit development (PUD) creates residential neighborhoods that can produce more profits for the developer and builder and they also provide better environment for the people. They mix residential development with commercial/retail property which expands the community. People also benefit for paying less in large house for less money. Neighborhood satisfaction is higher when residents believe their current neighborhood is an improvement. You could see that in the gated neighborhoods where people feel safer, there is more green space, and there is not much traffic route. People have different perspectives of a community and the developers are challenged to provide housing opportunities by the local regulations and satisfactory to those who live in them.
