Mixed-use, Mixed-income, pedestrian friendly, prosperous communities...everywhere!
Welcome to 𝗠𝘆𝘁𝗲𝗛𝗼𝗼𝗱𝘀
We are facing “Big, Hairy Problems” many of which only community can fix. Governments and individuals can only do so much, yet together, communities “of the people, by the people, for the people” can change their world and their effect on the planet by transforming our neighborhoods into thriving, equitable, pedestrian-friendly, mixed-use, mixed-income, Sustainable Villages, aka 𝗠𝘆𝘁𝗲𝗛𝗼𝗼𝗱𝘀!
Welcome to 𝗠𝘆𝘁𝗲𝗛𝗼𝗼𝗱𝘀, a software which rewards participation while gathering and building on the strengths of each individual and their neighborhoods' accumulative equity, empowering the community to meet the unprecedented challenges humankind faces. 𝗠𝘆𝘁𝗲𝗛𝗼𝗼𝗱𝘀 tracks the social (equitable, with profit sharing + perpetual affordability), economic (assuring investors and neighbors of a prosperous investment), and ecological outcomes ( net zero emissions + carbon credits)
𝗠𝘆𝘁𝗲𝗛𝗼𝗼𝗱𝘀* software keeps a running tally of participation points which become part of the basis for distributing profit-sharing, stock ownership of new residential and commercial buildings created by increased densities.
Fill out the onboarding survey and get rewarded by sharing your strengths and skills and watch as the community vision and the neighborhood's assets grow.
Individual responses will be kept anonymous.
*At this pre-beta stage, none of the back end is functioning. Your participation will help demonstrate the demand for sustainable neighborhoods and the efficacy of 𝗠𝘆𝘁𝗲𝗛𝗼𝗼𝗱𝘀.
The concept behind Sustainable Villages, 𝙈𝙮𝙩𝙚𝙃𝙤𝙤𝙙𝙨, is they have all the necessities of life within a 5-20 minute walk or micro mobility trip. This closer, convenient access to our daily lives, requires Smart Densities to create a low cost of living, a low eco-footprint, along with a higher quality of life for everyone.
The graphic below compares suburban sprawl to walkable Villages. Proximity is everything.

Strengths and Gifts
This dog obviously is talented at Frisbee! For too long, We've ignored the strengths of the neighbors. Not in Mytehoods! Turns out, everyone (students, faculty, city employees, etc) has a unique contribution which adds to the vitality and variety, the spice of life in the Village. The Mytehoods process gathers the strengths of the community and those who would like to move in.
𝗢𝗻𝗯𝗼𝗮𝗿𝗱𝗶𝗻𝗴 #𝟮 What are your Strengths and Gifts?
𝗢𝗻𝗯𝗼𝗮𝗿𝗱𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗤𝘂𝗲𝘀𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻 #𝟯 What are you passionate about? Our genius and ingenuity live in what we care about. Please list.
𝗢𝗻𝗯𝗼𝗮𝗿𝗱𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗤𝘂𝗲𝘀𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻 #𝟰 What would you include in the community design to support your strengths or area(s) you are passionate about? Please describe.
𝗢𝗻𝗯𝗼𝗮𝗿𝗱𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗤𝘂𝗲𝘀𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻 #𝟱 What is (are) the subject(s), skill(s), or talent(s) you're skilled enough to teach? Please list
Traditionally, villages have a plaza in the center, the heart of the community. Here is a mixed-use courtyard plaza design, with housing above, and retail and services below. With modest homes, this rendering houses about 50 residential units, and sits on 1 ¼ acre, with a 3/4 acre open space inside. (parking is additional). Zoom in and stroll around!
𝗢𝗻𝗯𝗼𝗮𝗿𝗱𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗤𝘂𝗲𝘀𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻 #𝟲 How could your work fit into the the plaza or the surrounding village? Is there a business you would like to start, or a service you would like to offer? Or one you would like to see included? Please describe...
Sustainable Village as Safety Net
In some real ways, Sustainable Villages are safety nets, socially, economically and ecologically. In the 1918 Spanish Flu pandemic, Gunnison, Co barricaded itself from the world, and was one of the few places that didn’t get the virus (675,000 Americans died). With all the necessities close by, 𝗠𝘆𝘁𝗲𝗛𝗼𝗼𝗱 Villages can do something similar; pull their heads in like a turtle to isolate themselves; life can still go on with a greater degree of normality, while the outer world struggles with the 2nd and 3rd waves.
With the growing numbers of Climate Change refugees, a third of Boomers having no retirement savings, a 47% job loss from disruptive technologies predicted over the next 25 years, as well as many folks wanting to age in place, neighborhood as safety net is increasingly essential.
𝗢𝗻𝗯𝗼𝗮𝗿𝗱𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗤𝘂𝗲𝘀𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻 #𝟳 What Safety Nets would you like to see built into the Village?
CONGRATULATIONS! You completed the 1st segment of the 𝗠𝘆𝘁𝗲𝗛𝗼𝗼𝗱𝘀 survey! Survey participants can see the accumulating results. This is the beginning of Mytehoods' contribution to the paradigm shift, where we learn how good it feels to be empowered, successful planet stewards, taking care of ourselves as we take care of others... and the planet!
In the Section 2,the Mytehoods software gathers info and anonymously aggregates the existing strengths and household expenditures, and connects the data into an Integrated Design Process (IDP).
Through the IDP, the complex Sustainable Village, “ puzzle of 1000 pieces” gets assembled, the triple bottom line values are confirmed, the capital is raised, construction drawings are created, and then the redevelopment proceeds to groundbreaking! (see timeline below)
The next sections will dive deeper into envisioned outcomes, assess the current cost of living, and share gentrification taming strategies which will enable Mytehoods Villages to remain a great place to live with a mix of incomes for future generations. You can return to the survey at any time and update our ideas and watch the magic happen, as neighborhoods evolve into Sustainable Villages!
A copy of your responses will be emailed to the address you provided.
