Residential areas are the heart of a city. Our homes are the centers of our lives, where we should feel most safe. And, while we may have multiple choices when it comes to walking through a certain part of town or using public transportation, we have few choices when it comes to the streets where we live.

The guiding principle here is "know thy neighbor." Street and homes should be designed to encourage interaction between. neighbors: good examples of these design elements are the front porch and property lines that are define simply by low shrubbery instead of high fences.
