Abstract

Streets have become dangerous, unlivable environments, yet most people live on them. Streets need to be redefined as sanctuaries| as livable places| as communities| as resident territory| as places for play, greenery, and local history. Neighborhoods should be protected, though not to the point of being exclusionary. The neighborhood unit, the environmental area and the Woonerf are examined as models for the protected neighborhood. The criteria for a protected neighborhood depend on acceptable speeds, volumes, noise levels, reduction of accidents, and rights-of-way for pedestrians. (Author).
