By building sustainable infrastructure at the scale of the neighborhoods this strategy allows the city to grow without increasing its load on metropolitan infrastructure or the city’s impact on the environment. By bringing the individual into contact with the systems which support urban life this strategy builds a culture of responsibility where each individual and each neighborhood is aware of the resources on which they depend.
