"Greenhills wasintended to be a national model - a self-containedneighborhood where residents could work, shop, play,dine out, go to school, see doctors and worship onlysteps from their homes. And while it fell short of some goals - plans to attract light industry, for example, never materialized - the village of 4,300 today remains true to planners' overarching objective: creating a community where land-use decisions could help shape tight-knit, small-town values."
