Abstract

Along with urban modernization, the changing needs and requirements introduced rapid urban growth and irregular construction. The pressures that economic and technological developments introduced, along with the increasing housing requirements, also changed and transformed the collaborative environments that communities built. One of the places where this change was most obvious was the transformation of the traditional neighborhood patterns into neighborhood units. Thus, the present study aimed to reveal the correlations between neighborhood satisfaction level, community satisfaction and sense of community of the neighborhoods. The research was carried out in Cukurcayir neighborhood, one of the new settlement areas in Trabzon province. All study participants were selected with random sampling and Satisfaction Scale, Neighborhood Attachment Scale and Sense of Community Scale were used to analyze the physical and social properties of the study community. The study data demonstrated that there was a positive and significant correlation between satisfaction, neighborhood attachment and sense of community.
