Advantages... - 1.75 Million Square Feet of Building/Suite/Offices/Lab Space -30-45 Retail Stores - 2,000 Residential units -Park and Amphitheater In this type of community all of the different types of program; restraunts, retail, and office space are grouped togehter in certain locations. This benifits the people living there, because they know what streets hold what, so if they want to go eat they only have to go to one central location to find a restraunt and same for retail spaces. All buildings are still considered mixed use and have housing above for the most part though. -Transit Score 60/100 -19 Bus & 1 Rail -Walk Score 82/100 -Daily Errands Can be completed on foot easily -School, grocery, restraunts, shopping, offices within an .8 mile radius.

In this type of community the buildings are layed out in small groups by street. Each street has some retail and some restraunts, with housing above. One thing that this community does that is interesting is to make use of the median spaces separating the road by putting small cafes there, which invite people to come together in places where they would usually not stop, increasing community interaction.

What is interesting about this community, is that all of the interior streets are walkable and cars can only access the area from three ally streets that lead to parking garages. This type of arrangement allows pedestrians access to all needs easily and become less dependent on cars.
  5. 5. Walkscore Health Environment Savings -Promotes more walkable neighborhoods -Tool to evaluate how easy it is for people to walk to where they want to go. -Based on the available walking routes to nearby ammenities. -Short commutes reduce stress and increase community involvement -People weigh 6-10 pounds less -82% of CO2 emmissions are from burning fossil fuels -Cars are the 2nd largest household expense -Health Benifits -Good for the Environment -Savings on household expenses -Every 10 minutes you spend in a daily car commute, community activity falls by 10% -Those that walk are typically happier -Your feet are zero pollution transportation machines -One point is worth $3,000 in home value Allendale... Examples: Shreveport: 38 Downtown Riverfront: 83 Allendale: 43 *9th most walkable neighborhood in shreeveport. Ability to walk to 0.1 shops and food markets within a 5 minute walk. Drive Less To Live More The walkscore of Allendale is 43, which means that the neighborhood relies mainly on cars to get around. This poses a problem because most of the people living in that area have limited access to cars. As you can see in the map there are very few places in close proximity that one can get to easily to take care of daily errands, such as grocery shopping. The only store in the grocery category is a liquor store. If Allendale was to put in more pedestrian friendly streets and build up the stores along that street, not only would it bring up the walkscore, but it would increase the economy flow within the area. With more people walking and more available businesses in the area the community would be more engaged and people would be healthier.
  6. 6. Bikescore Benifits of Pedestrian Oriented Neighborhood... -Determined by whether an area is good for biking for a given location -Measured by the amount of bike lanes, trails, hills, destination, roads, and connectivity. -$10 can be saved each day by coomuting 10 minutes by bike -One pound of CO2 is saved for each mile that a person bikes to complete their daily activites. Transit Score -How well a place is located to public transportation. -Usefullness of transit routes based on frequency of travelers and distances to shopping areas. -Becoming more active in a pedestrian oriented atmoshpere reduces the risk of heart diesease and stroke by 50%. The Ideal Neighborhood... -It cost nearly $8,000 to own a car, which is much more costly than a bike, and bikes require no gas and less upkeep on an annual basis. A neighborhood that encompasses both a good bike score and transit score, would have a good defined center with a main street or boulevard for maximum walkability. The neighborhood would also be very people oriented to increase community interactions. Alos the proposal of mixed use buildings, is one that would bring people closer to their three basic needs: Home, Work, & Errands. Mixed use buildings would also increase the diversity of the neighborhood, which is another good benifit. If these principles were used in Allendale; a city center, pedestrian oriented, mixed use, diversity, school/work in the same place, and complete street, Allendale would become a more well rounded neighborhood that would invite for people to want to live there.
