Act 6021: Fluid Neighborhoods

Fluid Neighborhoods

As cross-sectional and innovative transportation routes and means have exploded in recent years, a separate class of live- work commuters has arisen and formed Fluid Neighborhoods.  These Fluid Neighborhoods are comprised of cars, vans, or even boats that serve multiple functions as residences, business-centers, and/or transportation vehicles, and have steadily increased since the late in 2010s. 

 Several factors have contributed to this rapid growth, in particular rising rents which have been exacerbated by the FlexStreets system, whose success has resulted in making distant neighborhoods more appealing.  In addition to this, the alternative lifestyle offered by Fluid Neighborhoods has also been read as a reaction to the seemingly boundless expansion of the Hyperloop, which is seen as a threat to local character.
