Walkable Neighborhoods in Asheville
Walkable communities or pedestrian-friendly communities are desirable places to live, work, learn, worship, and play. Their desirability comes from two factors. First, walkable communities locate within an easy and safe walk to goods and services that a community resident needs on a regular basis. Second, by definition, walkable communities make pedestrian activity possible with expanded transportation options and streetscapes that better serve a range of users — pedestrians, bicyclists, transit riders, and automobiles.

“Villages preserve culture: dress, food and dance are a few examples. As villages grow in population and turn into towns, local cafes make way for large American chains. Handmade leather sandals are discarded for a pair of Western sneakers.
Due to its small size, a village fosters a tight-knit sense of community. Justpeace.org explains the meaning of the African proverb, “It takes a village,” by stating that a sense of community is critical to maintaining a healthy society.
Village members hold a wealth of information regarding their heritage: they know about the ancient traditions, methods of production and the resources of the land. When villages become dispersed or exterminated in times of war, this anthropological knowledge disappears.
Large cities are not as conducive to growing and producing foods such as fruits and vegetables. Villages, on the other hand, usually have ample amounts of land and other resources necessary for growing conditions.” The Importance of Villages by Catherine Capozzi
