Currently undeveloped areas designed to provide housing within a sustainable format. Including a mix of uses such as neighborhood-serving retail, services, and employment options, as well as larger town centers, will allow citizens to fully realize their day-to-day needs without having to leave their immediate area. Providing a wider variety of housing options rather than large homogeneous sections dedicated to a single type, will ensure that residents of all income levels can afford a home. Intentional greenspaces and neighborhood focal points accessible to all residents should also be provided to add to the sense of place and community. A well-connected multi-modal transportation network is also a key component of a New Complete Neighborhood’s success.
