If you are someone in the host region where a new VillageTown is proposed...
Spread the Word
What does it mean to have a VillageTown constructed in your region? Is it good news, or something to worry about? Consider the elements:
- It is a 24/7 design. This means no outbound commuters clogging the roads; no school buses or parents driving their children on your roads.
- It is designed with a greenbelt to prevent cross-boundary conflicts. About 1/3 of the land will be urban core, surrounded by 300 acres of trees and nature - not seen or heard.
- It will be economically strong, adding to the regional economy. It pays its own way, and adds to the economic health of the host local government.
- It will provide cultural and social enrichment, and it is not a gated community. All visitors of good will are welcomed and will find many things to do.
- It is designed to have very low crime, zero unemployment and zero poverty. It addresses a host of social problems through careful investment of its funds.
- It will seek to buy its food locally, supporting local farms with permanent food-buying contracts that specify low- or no-chemical farming.
- It will seek to purchase the development rights from surrounding farms, to protect its food supply, and to ensure that rural remains rural.
- It will have an industrial park, walk-to for the VillageTown residents, but no doubt offering employment opportunities for surrounding folk as well.
- It will seek cooperation with the host local government to handle such things as a higher level of recycling and better management of utilities.
In short, a VillageTown is intended to be a good neighbor, a good citizen and to make an extraordinarily positive contribution to its host region without any negatives.
