The Mayberry part is interesting to me. I read about a community being built in Amarillo a few years ago that had very limited backyard space. The idea was to encourage interaction between neighbors by not letting everyone literally hide behind their backyard fences. I do think privacy and boundaries are good, but if any of my neighbors were cooking something in the front of their house I wouldn't give it a second thought.
