    Transportation Networks

    This step involves envisioning a sustainable transportation network within and outside the community. Emphasis is placed on designing for universal accessibility, catering to the needs of elderly and physically challenged residents. Additionally, creative solutions like ziplines and gondolas are explored, enhancing mobility options. The goal is to establish an eco-friendly, integrated transportation system, promoting inclusivity and minimizing environmental impact.


    Basic Layout

    Basic envisioning of transportation network

    – within the community

    – outside the community

    Accessibility

    How will you design for accessibility for elderly and the physically challenged?


    Logistics

    How goods are moved/transported to/from the community. Packages? Mail?

    Creative transportation

    How can you have creative and low-impact/low emissions transportation (i.e. ziplines, gondolas)

    Cool beans. <div>

    The real estate projects that I visited (at least the 5-star ones) require visitors & residents to park at the designated areas near the front gate/security post. They then transport the humans & cargo within the “eco-resort/modern village” compound using Golf Buggies. For traffic-control & ‘cleaner air’ purposes.

    The thing to know about EVs (Electric Vehicles) is they might be lower emissions but the environment cost/damage to producing those batteries etc. Is still a detriment too. So it’s definitely like an improvement but not a complete solution.

      That’s great! I like the idea of driving golf carts everywhere. They are typically noiseless and fun. In other communities I’ve seen them use ATVs, because the terrain was more challenging, but they were so noisy. I personally think that this kind of noise disturbs wildlife.

      Agree that the best communities are pretty much 90% car free and have their vehicles parked outside/at the entrance.
