Planned Community

A planned community, or planned city, is any community that was carefully planned from its inception and is typically constructed in a previously undeveloped area. An example of a planned community is Marktown, Clayton Mark's planned worker community in Northwest Indiana. This contrasts with settlements that evolve in a more ad hoc fashion. Land use conflicts are less frequent in planned communities since they are planned carefully. The term new town refers to planned communities of the new towns movement in particular, mainly in the United Kingdom.

Navi Mumbai, a planned city near the Indian city of Mumbai, is the largest planned township in the world. It was also common in the European colonization of the Americas to build according to a plan either on fresh ground or on the ruins of earlier Amerindian cities.

Famous quotes containing the words community and/or planned:

    I am convinced that our American society will become more and more vulgarized and that it will be fragmentized into contending economic, racial and religious pressure groups lacking in unity and common will, unless we can arrest the disintegration of the family and of community solidarity.
    Agnes E. Meyer (1887–1970)

    “If little planned is little sinned
    But little need the grave distress.
    What’s dying but a second wind?
    How but in zig-zag wantonness
    Could trumpeter Michael be so brave?”
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)
