1. Small community. 100 to 200 homes or apartments. Very mixed age demographics. Senior citizens and young families with children. Lots of generational interactions.
2. Easy, quick and reliable transportation. Essentials stores and resources are easy to get too.
3. Community events and activities throughout the year, to provide the community opportunities to come together.
4. Rules to govern noise levels in the community. Not lawnmowers, leaf blowers and playing children, but cars and music. Keep noise pollution to respectable level. Not sure how to define that one.
5. Healthy lifestyle is promoted constantly in this community. Plenty of opportunities for exercise indoors and outdoors, for any season. Community gardens. Health conscious restaurants are the norm, not the exception.
