Do It Green! Minnesota

Communities

“. . . [A community] must have characteristics which cause it to substantially meet the following criteria:

  1. It must have enough population to support a full cross-section of community services, i.e. schools, including a high school, a major shopping center, etc.
  2. It must not be so large in size that it would be impractical for any portion to patronize reasonably located community facilities within it.
  3. It must not be divided by major physical features in such a way as to prohibit effective internal circulation.
  4. Wherever possible, it should have easily identified boundaries.
  5. Wherever possible, it should have a strong identifying feature or characteristic.

It is intended that communities serve as the basic unit for general planning the City. As such, they will be the Commission’s standard unit for field surveys, for data collection, tabulation and analysis, plan preparation and citizen participation.”

Neighborhoods

“The term “neighborhood” is used to describe the basic sub-division of the community. Typically, a neighborhood covers an area which can logically be served by one elementary school. The term “neighborhood” is meant to apply to predominantly residential areas, though servicing institutions, schools and businesses serving day to day needs are included within neighborhood boundaries. The term may also be applied to such intensive, special use areas as industrial, commercial, and institutional districts.”
