Through analysis of maps and field surveys, this study first investigated the process of spatial development and transformation of commercial streets in Sanmin district, and then presented the hometown environmental problems of this area. The present study also proposed direction and planning strategy for urban redevelopment. The spatial sprawl of commercial streets in Sanmin district has followed a basic model. In the beginning, linear commercial streets were the proto-type and then T-shape streets became dominant. Large groups of population were then drawn to reside in the area and thus cellular aggregation of commercial streets and residential zones became possible. Clustered settlements of significance were then shaped. Transportation system and urban planning played a major role in shaping areas landscape. As a primary force, rice crop made settlement development possible. Only when agricultural production became stabilized, could a village be formed and further developed into a traditional bazaar and crude commercial streets. In post-1945, national policies, such as land reforms and the transfer of agricultural capital into industry contributed to urban development. Besides, location, urban planning, and urbanization made it possible for Kaohsiung to develop into a diverse urban landscape. Today, people become unfamiliar with traditional place names and the sense of place fads away. Serious environmental problems have also been weakening the sense of community. The formulation and implementation of environmental management policy, such as policy for prevention of unlawful, polluting and vandalistic deeds, can be critical. Urban renovation is another important measure for the overhaul of urban problems. However, nothing is more difficult and essential than forming a sense of community from bottom up. The reconstruction of hometown can be fundamental for building the sense of community in the area. Social linkage and social encountering are important to the sense of community that is critical to the building of a civil society.
