ABSTRACT
The article focuses on how planned communities adopt to changes. Highway strips are believed to undergo rapid change compared to planned development. However, planned community is inferred not ready for a change as it does not plan for such, though change is said to be inevitable for a period of 50 to 100 years due to the emergence of new technology and economic forces. Thus, present developments for planned communities are advised to look similarly as individual buildings to be operated by a single entity and to be designed to imitate the old ways. Future developments are expected to adapt future changes.
