I also subscribe to several urban/community planning email lists (low traffic, thankfully), and came across the word "woonerf." The Dutch word is wide-spread in that field.
"In the 1970s the Dutch pioneered the 'living street' or 'living yard' called the Woonerf. These were residential streets where vehicle traffic and speeds were drastically reduced and priority was returned to the people that lived in the street. The same concept has been applied to community shopping areas, the Winkelerf."
