Sense of community is an important construct for environmental designers and researchers concerned with individuals and families and their relationship to communities. It is a compelling theme, which raises the fundamental question of how people are connected to, and influenced by, an important social setting - the neighborhood. A review of literature indicates sense of community has two different aspects: social and psychological. These aspects are in turn influenced by the physical environment in which an individual lives and the personal characteristics (age, sex, education level, marital status, etc.) of the individual (Glynn 1986; Kingston et al 1999; McMillan & Chavis 1986).
