Real Neighbourhoods

I believe every neighbourhood should

  • Have complete streets: everyone should be able to use the roads safely, conveniently, and comfortably, regardless of age, ability, or mode of transportation.
  • Have enough sidewalks and trails for people to get around on foot in summer and winter.
  • Be accessible by public transit and to cyclists.
  • Have practical access to a community garden.
  • Offer residents meaningful access to nature and natural spaces.
  • Offer green space—not just grass strips but trees and vegetation. [See Green Space, Parks, and Access to Nature.]
  • Offer spaces for exercise and healthy living.
  • Contain social spaces where people can meet, including seniors and families with young children.
  • Have access to grocery stores, convenience stores, and restaurants.
