Research shows enviro-friendly communities are safer, friendlier

Recommended Posts

Research by Frances Kuo, published in National Geographic, shows that communities with trees and green space have less crime, less domestic violence, more sociable neighbors, better memory retention on childrens' tests, and all sorts of other unexpected benefits.

This supports the notion that our urban planners and legislators should provide incentives or even requirements for greenspace in new residential developments as a way to reduce crime, increase test scores, and improve quality of life.
