Community and housing associations were great innovative ideas to help facilitate a long lasting residential district. Many of these associations regulate activities, create or administer fines, and provide services for the members. The association is governed by the members of the community. The association also receives dues from the residential member, which are generally invested back into the community or saved for emergency purposes. The overall impact of a well organized and democratic association has great tangible and intagible benefits. Tangible benefits can easily be observed by viewing common areas such as swimming pools or recreational equipment. However, intangible benefits such as community pride and accoutabilty are also developed as a result of community or housing associations. Created these associations in every type of residential development will be nesessary step in ending the current problems in the housing market. In all cases, this approach should be retroactive.
