Exploration of the Residents' Quality of Life Based on the Distance of Public Service Facilities: Case of Dalian

As the basic unit of residents' living conditions, the programs and research into public facilities around a community are conducive to people's livelihood and social harmony. In this paper, Dalian, one of the livable cities in China, is selected for this research: (1) due to its unique geographical location and topographic features, the spatial distribution of the quality of living for residents in the main urban area is uneven, communities with residents with a high quality of life in Dalian are distributed in flat and developed areas around the major transportation routes, (2) the urban population of Dalian is increasing every year and community construction remains around the high-quality community that is near the traffic trunk line. Meanwhile, the proportion of the number of high-quality communities is: Xigang>Shahekou>Zhongshan>Ganjingzi; (3) the historical development of coastal cities affects the spatial layout of traffic, functional areas, and population in the region, as well as future planning and development. The types of public facilities in the traditional residential areas are complete and serve the residents. The spatial distribution of residents with a high quality of life is centered around this area, which decreases gradually outward. This paper will make a preliminary small-scale and targeted exploration of the quality of living of residents in the main urban area of Dalian and will combine the experience from the construction of public facilities for social equity in China and abroad to improve the construction of public resource materials that are needed by residents in urban areas, which will provide a foundation for research into improving the urban living quality and spatial equity.
