Abstract

More U.S. residents live within suburban boundaries than they do the central cities and rural regions combined---creating a need for suburban design methods that adequately meet the desires of the suburban population. The design of suburban neighborhoods over the past several decades, however, has not adequately met the needs of its residents. This dilemma has only intensified over the past several years because of an increasingly varied group of potential hornebuyers. Local, state, and federal governments---as well as land developers, planners, and architects---need to raise awareness to the issues facing suburban design. By incorporating strategic design elements into the development process, neighborhood designs can more efficiently begin to address the diverse needs of the suburban population. This study acknowledges these changing needs while addressing community, nature, and economic feasibility issues as they relate to suburban neighborhoods.
