Tales Of One City (Part One of Three)

Private Community

Away from the noise of commercial shoppers and retailers at the front end of Chinatown, there is a community where residents live their private lives. Like most private residential area, Chinatown’s community is no different from others when it comes to having a peaceful, tranquil environment where residents are free from any unnecessary noise pollution which would disrupt their community.

Although the community may not be disrupted by noise, it is however being modestly (perhaps severely) challenged with the problem of overpopulation. The problem itself is not a new thing since the community is built mostly on a bunch of steep slopes and swirling curves, which it can only adjust and utilize itself based on the land that it has and that is currently available because the community itself can only provide so much space to residents (let alone their cars) before it becomes a potential health hazard should an emergency event take place.

And to solve this problem housing developers are actually building more apartment complexes into selective open spaces within the community to meet the supplies and demand of the economic situation. However, this only helps part of the situation where  additional housing supports the community’s expansion. On the other hand, the balance of meeting the challenge of reducing the development of further denser population in the community will be a difficult one to answer.

Logically speaking, adding more housing projects to an already overpopulated community is not a solution at all in helping to sustain or reduce the current situation. See, this problem will present a dilemma where Chinatown’s private community is further crippled to overpopulation when they choose to continue to expand themselves and if they do not expand themselves they would have failed to live up to the ideal standard of modernity that exist everyday in the city that takes pride in upgrading itself.

However approach the private community and its citizens of Chinatown decides to take to meet this challenge, it is worth looking into further as this continues to develop. It is also a noteworthy thing to be curious about since a situation like this can apply to any community and its citizens especially to those who live in or near an urban city setting where change is always happening.

And when change happens so does the markets. More details on that in the second of third trilogy in the Tales Of One City series when it returns on Thursday, March 13th.
