  1. I agree that these points are key factors in community well-being. They are the building blocks that lead to everything else. Good schools, restaurants, or access to stores are all important too. These bullet points can’t really be added to a community after it’s been established. They must be planned during the design process. A community with these planned characteristics would evolve and become what the people want it to be. It would be able to satisfy their other needs on all 7 levels. A bullet point I would add is “Room to grow.” A healthy community would have to adapt to the needs of those living in it.

  2. I do agree that the bullet points define community well-being. If the community doesn’t give the sense of community well-being no one would want to live there. High crime rate, tons of pollution, destroyed environment, ugly-looking buildings, and unfriendly people. Another bullet point would be “planned layout” or “community layout planned.” If a community wasn’t planned ahead, commutes would be longer, layout unprofessional, more unplanned gaps left unsafe, an inefficient amount of money would be spent, and people would be unhappy.
