Keeping a good neighborhood is a big deal for us, our family, and individuals who live in it. Therefore, we are responsible for keeping it safe, clean, and protected at all cost. There are thousands of neighborhoods, and some of them are entirely nice and beautiful. And even those old neighborhoods tend to be appealing as well. That’s the reason why we don’t leave anything about it to slow pace of change. As part of the community, we want it to grow and develop into something that generations will surely thank us for doing. In building a better neighborhood, it’s our responsibility to identify the principles that determine its progress. Therefore, we need to understand the process of how to get it done.
Valuing The Neighborhood’s Order
The way we shape our community is a manifestation of the kind of people we are to the world. So one of the vital things we need to do to build a better society is through valuing its order. Meaning, our neighborhood must have its unfailing balance. The factors included are the capacity of the numbers of people living in an area, the commodities all individuals can use, the community services that assist all persons, the proper medical aids everyone can get, and a lot more. The regular order of our neighborhood will help us determine the weakness and strongest points that can be used for collaboration for future references.
Implementing An Approach Suitable For All
When we look at our neighborhood suffering from a lot of societal issues, we cringe. These include the rise of crime rates, the inferior education for less fortunate individuals, the increase of street children and homeless people on the streets, the spread of drugs, and a lot more. That’s because one of the things that break it is the implementation of policies and regulations that only those who are less fortunate get forced to follow. So instead of directly implementing rules applicable only to those we think that needs it, it’s much better if the whole implementation goes out to all of us. But we don’t need to become one of those people who ruin the neighborhood to experience the importance of the implemented rules. We only need to be the ones who can help those people who seem to lost track of following the right directions.
Considering An Organized Complexity
As part of the community, we generally have the itch of straightening things out. But if we can’t, we tend to feel frustrated. We know that each neighborhood is different from another. However, all of them follow an arrangement. Meaning, too much mess in it, then it becomes off-putting and too much simplicity makes it boring. By that, what our neighborhood needs is an organized complexity of both variety and order. But before doing that, it needs to have a concrete plan of what target goals much achieve for community development. The advancement also requires considering its people as well. Any newly established project for the neighborhood must become useful to everyone in the area.
Providing A Visible Life For The Neighborhood
There are streets in the neighborhood that are dead, and there are those that are alive. Generally, we crave for the latter because we want to witness the life of the city on display. For the dead streets, somehow it is still okay. Some people don’t want to be disturbed by development and by that, we should respect their rights for choosing what’s beneficial for them. However, the problem with the kind of neighborhood that doesn’t allow improvement is its lost potential to become resourceful. There’s nothing to witness, there’s nothing to look forward to, and there’s no life in it. Somehow, that needs to change.
Creating An Uplifting Surrounding
We always believe that it is a considerable achievement when we try and move out away from people. We build our plots and live alone with family or people we only want in our lives. We usually tucked ourselves in a private realm. Though it seems perfect for others, it becomes a disaster over time. Building a world based on the false impression that we don’t need others becomes dreadful. So instead of sticking into a dull and isolated environment, we need to have a moderate balancing influence of living close to other people to create a very uplifting surrounding. The effect is beneficial in restoring a cheerful atmosphere that takes us away from stress and intense isolation.
Building a better neighborhood is not that easy. But it’s neither that complicated too. People like us must understand that our community depends on our contributions in making it healthier as well. In knowing the right principle of community development, we can ensure that there is no room for developmental containment.
