CNU members developed the “Principles for Inner City Neighborhood Design,” 14 strategies for rebuilding public housing into vital and vibrant neighborhoods. While the principles focus primarily on design, they should be considered in concert with social, economic, and environmental strategies.

existing housing. The Pattern Book is based on buildings in the Anacostia Historic District, but it has broad applicability in all the CHASE neighborhoods.
It conforms to local zoning, which sets out the legal requirements for development, and it provides additional design guidance to encourage infill that respects existing neighborhood fabric. recognizes that neighborhood success factors are more important to lower-income residents (e.g., Ahlbrandt ) and that they likely differ from those for wealthier areas.
Second, the topic of building new neighborhoods (e.g., at the urban fringe) is not covered in any depth. This still, however, leaves substantial scope. In low-income neighborhoods, even the best-designed parks and community centers go to waste if no one uses them. The nonprofit Kounkuey Design Initiative is taking that challenge head-on.
Low crime rate. Low crime rates give a neighborhood a sense of ease and calm. As safety and security are everyone’s concern, crime is a quick way to tell if a neighborhood is improving or not.

Neighborhoods have connectors such as sidewalks, backyards, parks, and other connectors that lend themselves to interaction with others. Sidewalks in suburban neighborhoods may not exist, yet the traffic patterns and street design allow for walking, playing and cyclists in relative safety.
The defensible space theory of architect and city planner Oscar Newman encompasses ideas about crime prevention and neighborhood safety. Newman argues that architectural and environmental design plays a crucial part in increasing or reducing criminality.
The theory developed in the early s, and he wrote his first book on the topic, Defensible Space in Traditional Neighborhood Design (TND) (also called “New Urbanism” and “Neo-Traditional Neighbor-hood Design”) is a town planning principle that has gained acceptance in recent years as being one solution to a variety of problems in suburban communities throughout the country.
Traditional neighborhoods are more compact communities. Often, municipal governments are unwilling to work with neighborhoods to improve the physical layout and design of their area to reduce the presence of drug dealers and other criminals.
The process frequently takes time because of the requirements of surveying, analysis, bidding for contracts, and allocating funds, all of which require patience.Crime prevention through environmental design (CPTED) is an agenda for manipulating the built environment to create safer neighborhoods.
It originated in America aroundwhen urban renewal strategies were felt to be destroying the social framework needed for self-policing.Plan Book.
