The neighborhood certainly got walloped in the last hurricane. Does OK usually.

The idea of utopian development is important for cities, including all of the best standards for utopia. Urban Planning has a noticeable, essential, intriguing role for being part of this.

There was a recent topic in the World forum that was so similar to the title topic and also a spirited discussion over there too: Seeking my utopia: No smoke, no drink, no lies, no rules... No place?

It is possible to be idealistic and realistic simultaneously, so it does not have to be overly idealistic/lack of realism for the configuration and existence of utopia in cities.

Some places all over the world in at least 25 countries sometimes show decent satisfying attempts at becoming a utopia.

Depends on how one defines utopia. What would be utopian to some might be hellish to others and vice versa. If the threads on The Urban Planning Forum teach us anything, it's that.
