The appearances of the landscaping and public areas are also included in these criteria. Recreational Activities: The variety of activities is taken into account for this criterion. Does the community offer both indoor and outdoor recreation?  Is there a fitness room with a personal trainer available?   Social Networking:  Whether the community provides an opportunity for social gathering of residents is a very important factor for most people.  This criterion reflects how often and what types of social networking is offered. Safety/Security:  This includes the level of the security force on duty.  Is there 24 hour security that patrol?   Are the communities gated?  Are all public area’s well lit at night?  The level of fire protection and the response time is also an important component of this criterion.
