Urban Neighborhoods: Research and Policy

By Ralph B. Taylor | Go to book overview

the data set used in this study, may also indicate the power of supportive sentiments about the neighborhood despite lower levels of evaluation ( Riger and Lavrakas 1981; Shumaker and Taylor 1983).

The paths by which positive neighborhood and community investments take place may differ for people in different social positions and by virtue of other personal and ecological characteristics. Similarly, despite many widespread preferences for neighborhood qualities that cut across positional differences, there are many variations in the strength of different residential desires associated with differences in social status. What is common to people quite broadly despite the differences in social position is the importance of the neighborhood as an actual experience and as a potential if widespread desires for neighborhood and community could be fulfilled more readily in modern, urban environments. As long as planners, developers, and builders retain conventional conceptions of residential preference and conventional procedures of neighborhood and home development, the opportunities for the attainment of such community experience are likely to be minimal. Hopefully, as with increased attention to widespread desires for recreation in residential communities, the importance of neighborhood and community opportunities may eventually begin to influence future residential developments.
