For the past few years Cottage Living Magazine has put out a top 10 list of "cottage" neighborhoods. In 2006 they celebrated "well established communities; places with inspiring architecture, porches, and gardens; walkable streets with parks and playgrounds; locally owned shops and restaurants; and an enveloping neighborliness". Now the list has broadened to include conservation communities that improve quality of life through innovation & planning. Developers on the cutting edge are considering ideas from our past, like living with the land, to the modern challenges we face such as global warming. Let's see, live in a community where you grow your own veges, support your neighbor's coffee shop, walk to parks & schools, sounds like the good old days, doesn't it? I love it!
