To effect such a program, developers should cooperate with local planning authorities so that their projects will conform to the city !>lnn. The loiwgraphy of a selected location should be considered in relation to the proposed price range, since the physical character of the land has a direct bearing on the cost of the development. The question of accessibility to employment, recreational areas commercial centers, and schools Is Involved in the question of location. The adequacy and cost of public transportation, street I m prove- ments, water supply and sewage disposal, health and safey services- and the lax rate have an Important, bearing on the suitability of a given site for a definite housing demand. Distinguishing'characteristics arc revealed in various neighborhoods FIIA officials point out. Location accessibility, layout, landscaping, and architecture establish the Initial character of a neighborhood. Adequate Services Adequate public • services, enforced zoning, subdivision regulations; and suitable restrictive covenants improve the marketability of properties and the stability of neighborhoods.

Constantly changing land use, rapid turn-over In ownership and occupancy, and depreciating land values result from Inck.of proper attention to these elements, FHA officials declare Careful coordination of these factors results in attractive - and stable neighborhoods, a prime necessity for long-range.appeal for home purchasers.
