Foundation owned corporationsThe proposed corporate entities are going to vary within each and every individual location, though there are certain corporate entities as have been selected for numerous reasons that should be included wherever possible. These particular corporate entities are not only economically viable, but also provide ideal training and educational opportunities for students, active and/or tangible benefits directly to the community, the provision of necessary goods and services, among other reasons … not the least of which is their ability to generate positive proceeds.

  • Commercial Resort(s)

    • Commercial resorts should span across all budgets and economic classes, for everything from high-end resorts to budget hotels and motels. This should be strategically located near local tourist attractions, ideally also within the community developments. Commercial resorts can also serve as a viable, paid training ground for training of people in the areas of customer service and the correlative service industries within such a venture … or series of corporate entities.

  • Entertainment Venues

    • Entertainment venues are imperative within any community, though these should extend beyond the foundation owned grounds for more general activities. These should include a full concert hall, suitable for drama, symphony and even concerts, movie theaters and other venues of a similar, entertaining nature. These venues will remain paid venues, and not be included as part of the social benefits to the local population.

  • Commercial Fishing Fleet(s)

    • Negotiations have already begun (at the time of this writing) for the establishment of a complete commercial fishing fleet, consisting of 240 commercial fishing vessels, docks, full cargo ports (deepwater ports) and even ship building and repair facilities in a Joint Venture with one of the indigenous (aboriginal) tribes. This is one of the potential corporate ventures actively being pursued for funding in order to provide the financial basis for the construction of the entire community development, initially in a cooperative effort with the said Indigenous tribe. This would be an ideal focal point for the original commencement of commelo-cial activities in order to provide for the necessary growth and expansion for the Incorporation in addition to the self-funding of additional projects by the foundation and parent incorporation

  • Commercial International Airports

    • In some cases, it may not be necessary to build airports at all, though given the scope and possibility of self-funding projects around the globe, even if only in areas wherein they have already been approved, and the resultant logistics of global trade, both domestic and international airports in addition to a complete air and shipping cargo and freight service are seen as being both relevant and even necessary

  • Commercial Shopping Malls (Foundation)

    • The majority of the commercial shopping malls and other commercial enterprises within the community development should be wholly, or at least largely owned by the foundation through the incorporated parent.

  • Commercial Shopping Malls (Open Membership)

    • While it is preferably for the foundation to retain sole ownership of the malls, it should be allowable to rent space to outside business interests within the malls, not only as a means to draw in the “Majors” (Primary, brand-name Department Stores at the major corners or busier sections of the mall) but also to open them up for franchised interests. Even so however, most of the individual franchise opportunities within the malls (and most other locations within the community developments) should be owned by the foundation. These will include the majority of the restaurants and some of the retail stores. However, room should also be made to lease space out to make room for outside ventures as well, if nothing more than to provide more options and selections for the local (and transient) population(s)

  • Commercial Franchises (Foundation Owned)

    • In addition to the ready-made and brand-name franchise opportunities to be owned and operated by the foundation, there will be new franchises created by necessity as the community developments mature. The produce generated on a thousand hectare food forest in addition to the harvest from approximately ten thousand breeder sows, fifty to one hundred thousand sundry fowl for breeding and harvest and other similar efforts would rapidly flood and crash local markets. It is going to be necessary not only to market the excess production of goods at the retail level, but also to find new national and international markets for the sake of domestic market stability and overall sustainability. These franchise opportunities, in the same manner as is common through Asia, Europe and the various nations in Africa, will be made available from the street vendor level food carts all the way up to full scale, sit-down restaurants. The smaller franchises will be utilized as a means for training future entrepreneurs and/or management personnel and perhaps even business owners, selected from among the formerly underclass citizens who have demonstrated an aptitude for such levels of business and responsibility

  • Commercial Franchises (Foundation Owned, external Franchise such as 7-11 and KFC)

    • As was previously noted herein, there will inevitably be some franchise business interests within the community development. However, by and large, any and all such business interests as shall be built within the community developments should remain under the sole ownership of the foundation and/or the Incorporated parent

  • Commercial Theme Park

    • A commercial theme park may seem superfluous or even extemporaneous at first glance, though it would assist in bringing in capital from outside in addition to working as a viable means for the paid training of all manner of skills, including engineering, construction, maintenance, service personnel, management, customer interactions and a host of other relevant and very marketable skills. Again, the parks should be in line with the overall native and sustainable themes, likely based on the local culture and history, but with an array of rides and attractions. Furthermore, the theme parks should be well suited to accommodate any and all budgetary levels, most notably in regards to the surrounding resorts and hotels, also to be owned by the foundation through the incorporated parent

  • Industrial and Business Parks

    • Given the fact that a great many of the community developments will be established from the very beginning as special economic zones, the inclusion of business and industry seems to be an integral part of such zones. Furthermore, these would provide paid jobs for the local people, in addition to bringing in economic benefits from other locations around the host nation and even internationally. This would also provide for an additional increase in business for the shipping and transportation involved in the logistical support centers necessary for the operations of the parks, again creating a great many paid and paid training benefits for the local population of the community development.

  • Abattoir

    • Given the vast numbers of the livestock, and the necessary preparation of many of the meats for the ongoing and ever-expanding franchise opportunities within the Community Developments, the abattoir is more of a necessity than it is a luxury. However, this, like most of the agricultural efforts, will most likely be situated within the innermost portions of the large-scale food forests and thus, no longer a bothersome presence for the neighbors

  • Marina(s)

    • The marinas are a necessity in any coastal region, though are specifically included here as an addition to the ongoing negotiations with indigenous tribes that wish to pursue their commercial ventures in a joint venture, and who also wish to enable and attract tourism and a larger transient population to contribute to the local economic system. Furthermore, like many other aspects of construction and the essential corporate entities, the marinas can (and should) be established to fit all budgets and financial classes

  • Hotels and Resorts (From five-star to budget)

    • The hotels, resorts, motels and other similar areas should be built largely in and around the industrial centers and the tourist areas. Like the other aspects of development, these should be constructed in order to match virtually any budget and will serve to provide both paid jobs and paid training opportunities for the local people

  • Public Market

    • Some people just like the feel and experience of an open air market or bazaar and these, already a prominent part of many locations around the world, are an excellent means to provide the people with a direct local market for their wares and items. Despite the ownership by the foundation of the largest, most notable corporate entities and business interests within the community development, entrepreneurship should be rewarded and encouraged. This includes the provision of shops in bazaars, malls and other locations, at greatly reduced rates for the local residents

  • Cruise Ship Lines

    • The cruise ship lines are another effort to bring in outside economic support for the community as a whole. Again, this depends on the ultimate location wherein the community development(s) will be built, though it is based on the expressed desires and current negotiations with indigenous tribes and peoples. The cruise ships will provide an excellent location for people to perfect their language skills, to receive paid training and to provide permanent jobs for the local community members

  • Commercial Ocean Vessels

    • As was previously noted, the commercial fishing fleet will likely be one of the primary capital markets to drive and fund the ongoing construction and future projects, though this fleet still leaves some room for a more privatized supplement as well. This portion will include diving vessels, especially those as needed for oceanic conservation studies and projects, private fishing and party charter boats and a host of other business ownership opportunities for the individual community members

  • Sustainable Timber & Textile Production

    • Timber and Sustainability are not often heard together in the same sentence, though they should be, especially if wholly systemic sustainable development is the pretense for the overall construction. The Paulownia Princessa tree, while needing an intimate level of management and control, also provides for a great many unique opportunities, not the least of which are to serve as viable carbon offsets and for the introduction of sustainable timber and lumbering practices. These plantations will be further subsidized through the growth of jute and even industrial hemp wherein such growth is legal. The lumber and timber can be used for everything from arts and crafts to musical instruments to knick knacks to home construction. The textiles can be used for making everything from paper and cloth to rope to bird seed and even the virgin oils can be turned into very viable and marketable goods, all spawning their own business interests and new markets within the community developments

  • Commercial Livestock

    • Commercial livestock is a given, as has been noted herein. However, it is also a thriving industry in and of itself. Despite the heavy Muslim and Islamic populations so prevalent in West Africa, some nations, such as Nigeria, are such that pork is the most commonly consumed meat and the domestic pork markets are incapable of keeping up with demand. Livestock not only feeds additional business interests and other industries, but remains a viable industry in and of itself

  • Public Transportation (Intra-Complex)

    • Public transportation is not in and of itself a viable money-making venture, though can be beneficial (and necessary) for the sake of systemic sustainability within the community developments. The variations in maintenance costs and fuel consumption vary at insufficient levels for concern, whether full or empty. Regularly scheduled public transportation should easily be funded through the Private Hedge Fund and run constantly on a regular schedule, free to riders
