Mixed-use, Mixed-income, pedestrian friendly, prosperous communities...everywhere!
Welcome to ๐— ๐˜†๐˜๐—ฒ๐—›๐—ผ๐—ผ๐—ฑ๐˜€
We are facing โ€œBig, Hairy Problemsโ€ many of which only community can fix. Governments and individuals can only do so much, yet together, communities โ€œof the people, by the people, for the peopleโ€ 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 ๐— ๐˜†๐˜๐—ฒ๐—›๐—ผ๐—ผ๐—ฑ๐˜€!

Welcome to ๐— ๐˜†๐˜๐—ฒ๐—›๐—ผ๐—ผ๐—ฑ๐˜€, 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. ๐— ๐˜†๐˜๐—ฒ๐—›๐—ผ๐—ผ๐—ฑ๐˜€ 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)

Rewarding Participation
๐— ๐˜†๐˜๐—ฒ๐—›๐—ผ๐—ผ๐—ฑ๐˜€* 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 ๐— ๐˜†๐˜๐—ฒ๐—›๐—ผ๐—ผ๐—ฑ๐˜€.
The concept behind Sustainable Villages, ๐™ˆ๐™ฎ๐™ฉ๐™š๐™ƒ๐™ค๐™ค๐™™๐™จ, 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.

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 ยผ acre, with a 3/4 acre open space inside. (parking is additional). Zoom in and stroll around!

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 didnโ€™t get the virus (675,000 Americans died). With all the necessities close by, ๐— ๐˜†๐˜๐—ฒ๐—›๐—ผ๐—ผ๐—ฑ 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.

CONGRATULATIONS! You completed the 1st segment of the ๐— ๐˜†๐˜๐—ฒ๐—›๐—ผ๐—ผ๐—ฑ๐˜€ 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!
What's Next?
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, โ€œ puzzle of 1000 piecesโ€ 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!
