You Would Live in the Outer Neighborhood


Based on your responses, you would live in the Outer Neighborhood if you could live anywhere. The Outer Neighborhood has more distance between commercial and residential spaces. People who prefer outer neighborhoods want their home to be surrounded by other homes, usually without any other types of businesses or activities nearby. They like being able to have larger yards or open spaces nearby, away from the activity of the main street.

Since outer neighborhoods are less connected and compact, commercial, employment, and recreation destinations are predominantly designed around vehicular access instead of pedestrian or bicycle access. The lower densities of these neighborhoods cannot support transit. People who choose to live in outer neighborhoods most likely drive to work, the grocery store, or to recreational activities. They may spend 40 to 90 minutes in their cars every day, but the extra space is worth it to them.
