The Village Forum discusses a settlement model called a village town that aims build a town from 20 villages of approximately 500 people each.  A population of about 500 people is where an effective face to face social dynamic can occur, but it is generally too small to support a local economy, thus the idea of a village town which is a cluster of villages.
