The sustainability of a neighborhood has a crucial role in preserving the environment for future generations. The development of neighborhoods consumes an excessive amount of land that needs to be protected. Libya must consider sustainable neighborhood indicators in its urban planning and design to allow future generations to benefit from such development. This paper focuses on issues that are related to the sustainable neighborhood indicators and development of Libya. Specifically, sustainable neighborhood development was investigated on the basis of shareholders, whereas the sustainable neighborhood indicators were examined in terms of their physical features and benefits. Results showed that sustainable neighborhood indicators of various countries are generally similar and only differ depending on their regional climate characteristics. This paper proposes several approaches for optimizing the sustainable neighborhood indicators of Libya.
