One of the bonuses of a more compact and connected community is when you can meet your daily needs on foot or by bike, rather than having to rely on a car for everything.

“Americans need to walk regularly for good health, but the way many neighborhoods are designed is unsafe and not conducive to walking,” says U.S. Surgeon General Dr. Vivek Murthy.
