Health and Place Special Commodities in New Urban Development

Abstract :

I grew up in the Highlands 460 neighborhood in Centennial, Colorado. I remember in the years before I got my license feeling so imprisoned by my neighborhood and shut off from the rest of the world. The closest commercial center was a bunch of furniture stores ten minutes away. The only place that offered any sort of food, a 7-11, was a 15 minute walk from my house. Every day after school my friends and I would ride our bikes there, staying on the sidewalks because drivers would yell or honk at us when we rode on the streets, and get slurpees. They were cheap and sugary and it was the only place to get treats that we could bike to easily. Our suburb, like many other suburbs across the United States, was built for automobile traffic and not for walking or biking.
