Nothing convinces a business to move faster than bad roads. Companies often have heavy trucks delivering supplies, and their workers must use the same roads. Dips, holes and excessive maintenance tie up traffic. These factors often give companies an excuse to move, and they are wooed by communities with new roads and better living conditions. Tax breaks are often part of the package for the company.
The company can then entice their best workers to move to a community where life will be nicer for their families. Workers are loyal because they see the company cares about their welfare, and they also care about the welfare of the worker's family. Commuting is no longer a hassle because of traffic tie ups. Wear and tear on the family vehicle is also a plus, and it saves money on buying a new vehicle. All of these factors will make workers move with a company.
Repaving roads is expensive, and it creates traffic issues. Many communities would rather avoid these problems. If they continue to ignore them, their town will die. Repaving a road is a complex process, but it is better to get it done quickly. Investing in flexible paving is one of the best ways to spend precious community money. These roads resist dips, holes and require less maintenance. Heavy vehicles are not a problem because the weight travels down into the ground without damaging the surface.
Common areas must also be maintained by the community. They should look nice, and be planned for the convenience of the people. Walkways made of concrete are a good porous paving option. They allow rain water to be absorbed and keep the walks safe. Garden areas should use permeable paving with dried aggregates because the tiles can be laid down in a pattern pleasing to the eye. This decorative touch sets off the beauty of plants and keeps water from pooling in the area. These paving options make people feel welcome when sharing the common area with friends and neighbors.
