Guests sounds way too much like customers. Customers of hotels are referred to as guests. 

Contact (to me) sounds confusing compared to contact=* key

I would use something a little odd sounding like transitors or something, though that sounds like homeless people or electronics.

visitors is also really close to guests and customers, so I wouldn’t use it either. 


Locals! people who live there. delivery people and visitors certainly are not locals, so.. 

what word implies locals + delivery + customers? But not people just um.. wandering about?

I can’t think of one. I don't’ think there is one. 

Destination is very good, because it implies people who are going to a destination on that street/area. not free to roam around, not free to park and wander off. 

=Destination is for people *visiting* the destination the road services. it doesn’t matter the purpose - as long as their destination is one of the residences. Which excludes sightseers and shortcut-takers. 

There’s no way to find a word that means all those different groups, for so many different purposes - so define it by their action - “Destination” .
