Description :
This paper examines the fit of neighborhood CandRs with resident preferences in Porter County, Indiana, a growing suburban/exurban place in the Chicago Metropolitan Statistical Area. The majority of interviewees stated that CandRs match resident preferences because they believed that they promoted subdivision tidiness and worked to support property values. The minority view was that they are too strict and residents do not obey CandRs. The results suggest the particular content of CandRs does not seem to fit resident preference; rather the fact that CandRs are not enforced fits resident preference. Seemingly, residents are content being unaware of the CandRs, then they do not know if someone is breaking the rules or not. This may imply that residents would not want to have CandRs in the first place.
