Fandango’s Provocative Question #200
Fandango’s Provocative Question is a weekly writing opportunity to allow your mind to travel to unexplored area on argumentative intrigue and oppositional engagement.
Each week Fandango poses a provocative question for consideration.
I browsed through several of Fandango’s offerings and found them both motivating and energizing. If you blog and are looking for topics of interest, give Fandango’s Provocative Questions a try.
This week’s PROVOCATIVE QUESTION …
Most people live in one of four types of communities: urban, suburban, exurban, or rural.
- An urban community is one that’s in a relatively high density city or town
- A suburb community is a place where people live just outside of a city or town.
- An exurban community is an area further out and just beyond a typical suburban community and bordering on rural communities.
- A rural community is one with lots of nature, open spaces, and farms, with a relatively low density.
Which of these four types of communities do you currently live in? Are you happy there? If so, why? If not, why not, and which type of community would you prefer to live in?
I live on the edge of a suburban-rural community. There is a Walmart and a small shopping center, a post office, an elementary school, three gas stations, ten places to eat out, and twelve houses of worship (population 3000). The small town’s historical district encompasses 200+ local buildings. Within a five mile radius there are five park/ recreation centers.
