Safety

Hometown provides a safe traffic-free environment.  Access roads link driveways at the rear of each property onto a perimeter road.

 

Children and elderly can walk safely within the community without ever crossing a street.

Using "Defensible Space" principles also protects against crime.  (But would you believe traffic poses a greater risk than crime, drug abuse, and gunshot risks?  Research says so.)

 

Socialization

Hometown's U-shaped blocks form a clear unit, creating instant community.

Safe walkways connect everywhere and everyone within the community.

 

Centrally located elder cottages connect elders and children providing elders with an extra 10 years of independent living.

 

An abundance of informal gathering places maximizes opportunities for social interaction

 

Serenity

In Hometown every home faces a park.  Hey, Hometown is a park.
