Such horrific decay of urban areas occur because of uncertain economic forecast. Urban communities or cities have a tendency of experiencing drastic fluctuation of population size (during various economic cycles) due to economic volatility. With effective urban planning and implementations of new regulations, urban communities are able to weather the unpredictable economic landscape. Sustainable planning can be realized through the enhancement of existing urban amenities, providing alternative to vehicular transportation, and reducing urban sprawl through mix-use developments. Maximizing social and economic benefits for the city or urban community in particular with human health, a public problem in America today is the alarming obesity rate among children. Entrepreneurial activities of local development officials do stimulate investment for the urbanscape. Highlighting the character of the cultural heritage urban community’s is also of great importance. Community members will begin to embrace an environmental sense of place for their urban community. With the intent of eliminating negative impacts on our urban amenities, the technique of promoting the metropolitan’s potential for high economic success. Allowing higher degree of socioeconomic diversity among the community’s population, add vitality, economic stability, and even safety because it will allow for land-usage at various times of the day.
