Evaluate Neighborhoods

  • William Duncan
Part of the Housing production manual book series (HPM)


The purpose of this step is to obtain enough data to make educated decisions regarding the neighborhood or neighborhoods in which you may undertake housing production.

The outcome of this preliminary step is to determine whether a neighborhood is suitable for housing production at this time and, if so, what production model or models are appropriate. For one neighborhood or a set of neighborhoods, you will be determining the following:
  • ■ The critical needs for housing production.

  • ■ The barriers to housing production; for example, crime, environmental problems, or social apathy.

It is assumed, even in a proposed area-wide program, that all planning steps will be performed at the level of individual neighborhoods.
