The Westhaven community in Franklin has decked the halls for the holiday season with residents adorning their front porches and yards. We stopped by to take some photos of these festive porches.
The Westhaven community is located on New Hwy 96 in West Franklin. It incorporates a Traditional Neighborhood Design, following nine principles to create a neighborhood where everyone can work, play and live in one, cohesive, family-friendly space. Features you’ll find in Westhaven include a community with great walkability, meaning residents can walk to shops and the local elementary school within minutes; a variety of dwellings, from apartments to condominiums to homes, as well as, shops and offices with a variety of price points; streets that form blocks, which create a connected network for residents, as well, as provides a variety of routes to disperse traffic and eases walking.
“Those who inhabit a neighborhood are a community. They share a physical environment and a common interest in its future condition, as well as their own well-being. When neighbors communicate effectively about these interests, they may be referred to as a ‘community of place.’ Community is more about relationships that bind people together than it is about the environment.”
