About 2500 families live in this area. About 1400 out of them are living in public housliving. When remodeling of apartment complexes started in 2003, a community development committee was founded.
The committee has been concerned about frequent solitary death, so it started 'Civilian Watcing Activity' in order to regain selfsupportive feelings which people used to have.
By picking up local people's opinions, a daily map of the old days was made. Based on that, children and school staff worked together, making suggestions for remodeling of parks.
For remodeling of the apartment complex, survey on life styles and design workshops were conducted repeatedly, and as a result, an adjutable plan foe various types of life styles was made.
At present, acutual plans
for apartment complex remodeling are in progress, and cooperative housing project is taking place, aiming to ownership of a private housing.
