Welcome to the 20-Minute Village article

Wasn't sure where this would fit so....

John Danicic and Kim Ode are living the suburban American Dream. They built a home on a half-acre lot studded with trees in Edina, Minnesota, where their children attended the highly ranked local public schools. Their driveway easily accommodates their three vehicles, which is handy because Danicic's woodworking projects often overtake the two-car garage.

Yet one of the things they like most about their house is something typically associated with city living — the wealth of shops and services within walking distance
.

The growing popularity of the 20-Minute Village (also known as the urban village) is confirmed by the National Association of Realtors (NAR), whose most recent community preference research found that 85 percent of survey participants said that "sidewalks are a positive factor when purchasing a home, and 79 percent place importance on being within easy walking distance of places."
