Community Developmentsi have, in one form or another, been around since ancient humans discovered the means to farm and began gathering together for safety in numbers and at the same time, providing, each for the other in regards to their harvests. Over the course of time, these community developments have evolved into modern day urban centers, suburban residential areas and more rural farming and industrial communities. Unfortunately, the fact that nearly one-half of the population of the world continues to live in absolute poverty is a strong indication that this current system does not work. Exacerbating these problems even further, are the radicals on all sides who are either incapable or unwilling to compromise and demand that the entire world bow to their demands believing that they know what is best for everyone.
In reality, what is needed is the introduction to a new system and a new manner of creating societies wherein the solutions are adaptable to all of the subtle, social, environmental, economic and other quirks and disparities that prevent modern humanity from living a more personally and socially rewarding life. The adaptive and integrated methods utilized for the Community Developments will allow for a more harmonious and symbiotic relationship for humans and the environment.
The Community Developments will be planned with the local environment, local ecosystems and people in mind … adapted to meet the individual needs of that community. This planning will include all of the proposed industry, trade and specialized needs of the community. These will include hospitals, orphanages, educational institutions and other such facilities as shall be deemed by the planning committees to be beneficial and desirable for the local community, citizens and such tourism and/or other transient populations (such as students, researchers, etc) as may be forecast for the individual community development. The work forces will consist of a number of professionals who may or may not become full-time citizens of the Community Developments while a major portion of the work force will consist of formerly underclass citizens who will then have jobs and a viable income in addition to the means to provide for their families while they workii and earn (and build) their own homes and communities.
This facet of the community development and the associated personal pride, will help to greatly reduce the stigma associated with living on the “wrong side of the tracks” or on “that side of town” as the people already there will constitute the very heart of the community, no matter where they may choose to live. As the “normal” members of society move in and begin to populate the actual community, there will be no public record or other indication of who may or may not have been poor or rich or anywhere in between. There will be no segregated housing or systems designed to create a dependency class.
Some sociological support programs will, by necessity, be mandated for the formerly underclass citizens. These will be programs regarding budgeting, money management, family planning and other concerns. These will address any debilitating issues as well as provide other support systems as may be needed based on the requirements of the local citizenry and those brought in to build the community developments. Additional support programs will be made readily available to any and all citizens of the community on an ongoing basis as shall be decided by citizen review boards, the ombudsman programs and any such leaders as shall be present within the community development(s).
i Community Development has been around for as long as people have been banding together for their protection and welfare. It can rightfully be said that the Community Development is the very basis of Human Development insofar as civilized society is concerned. The Integrated and Adaptive Community Developments work to unite people through common goals and benefits with an allowance for the advancement of the individual based on their own merits and drive.
ii Education is considered to be “work” in this instance as the advancement of the individual will benefit the advancement of the Community and vice versa.
