Are you a traditional person? If so, this can be a good fit. However, if you have more than 2 cars, lots of parties or people over, lots of pets (or outdoor cats or keep unleashed dogs), work or keep late hours or have difficulty keeping your maintenance up on your cars, you may have problems with your traditional neighbors.
The good is people who buy here plan to keep things the same and are looking for security and steady value. Your return when selling should be fairly consistent.
Not sure what information you are looking for and what you consider a "traditional" development. In San Pedro there are small developments like The Cape which consists of townhome style SFRs in a gated small community. The homes are close together with small yards/patios, there is a monthly homeowners fee to maintain the development. Parents like it there because the kids can play outside without having to worry about traffic and most people know each other, making it feel more like a neighborhood. The downside is noise from being so close together, rules from homeowners association and small yards. If you are referring to the proposed Ponte Vista development, that opens up a whole other bag of worms and it can be discussed hypothetically but I doubt it will become a reality.
