My ideal community would be one to embrace diverse construction techniques that would embrace; efforts to protect the environment from deforestation, promote sustainable buildings to combat climate changes such as global warming and protect environmental degradation of leaving open pits (quarry), a result of brick excavation.

Glass walls would be encouraged; this would ensure maximum utilization of sun energy thus conserving produced power.
Housing units are single houses (stand alone), row or line units and attached houses. The urban face would consist of attached buildings serve as working blocks and residential units.
