– Metropolitan:Metropolitan planning is a development rather than a definitive statement. It is a prototype for the physical development of the conurbation, a pattern to direct the city builders in establishing their investments and computing the vision for success. It is a design of the physical, societal, cost-effective, and geographic properties of the metropolis leading to a structure.

– Multicultural:Multiculturalism holds cultural and intellectual differences within a society. It has the potential to bring people of quite a lot of cultural backgrounds together.

– Historically, Artistically and Culturally Distinctive Cities:Varying patterns of utilizing public spaces is the outcome of differences in cultural, historical, and artistic values associated with a city.
