Threat: Housing & Urban AreasEdit

Definition Edit

Human cities, towns, and settlements including non-housing development typically integrated with housing. Examples include urban areas, suburbs, villages, ranchettes, vacation homes, shopping areas, offices, schools, hospitals, and birds flying into windows.

This category obviously dovetails somewhat arbitrarily with Commercial & Industrial Areas. As a general rule, however, if people live in the development, it should fall into this category. (CMP)
