Refocusing on Core Missions — Pillars of Sustainable Communities

Re-Tooling Sustainable Public Housing and Public and Corporate Community Development

Process: Goals, Measure, Results, Successes and Revise — Repeat

The Pillars of Sustainable Communities:

  • Economic, Commerce, & Employment (Business)
  • Spiritual
  • Education
  • Health, Welfare, & Shelter
  • Governance and Safety

Significant areas of Focus:

  • Sustainable Public Housing — Create public housing incentives to learn job skills in the planning, development, and construction of publically-funded housing.
    • New Ideas – Best and Brightest — University programs in architecture, urban design, locations, and mixed-use buildings which encourage ownership, pride in community, character, entrepreneurs, community interaction, revitalization and rejuvenation, starting businesses, owning retail, security, services, and restaurants within city housing communities.
    • Integrate New Businesses — Incentivize/Encourage entrepreneurs to start new businesses for Property Management, grounds maintenance, landscaping, and building maintenance by hiring and training local community members.
    • Urban Employment — Existing and future sub-contractors mandate that contractors hire local unemployed community members on a 1-for-1 basis — support with training and mentoring for all services provided by public funding.
    • Customer Service Model and Mentality – Design around and serve the customer (i.e., the tenant). Integrate with all stakeholders
  • Sustainable Corporate Community Development — Create Goals for Corporate Community Development, Measure the Important Metrics, View & Evaluate Tangible Results, Analyze Successes and Revise Plan – Repeat.
    • Process:
      • Goals — Identify and Define the Goals – “What’s Important”
      • Metrics — Design the Metrics to provide the right incentives – “What & How to Measure”
      • Implement – Conduct Projects – “Do”
      • Results — View and Evaluate Tangible Results – “How Did We Do”
      • Analysis — Analyze Successes (and challenges) and Revise – “Feedback and Adapt”
    • Hire Local — Hiring local unemployed community members
    • Best & Brightest Ideas — Encouraging interaction with Local Colleges and Universities
    • Business Mentality – Think like a Business; Companies sponsor (“seed capital”, no give-aways, just hiring and focused attention) and mentor entrepreneurs to start new businesses — higher corporate revenues, improved corporate profits from locally mentored employees/entrepreneurs and the started businesses buying from local companies.
    • Employable Results — Companies will have a better pool of talented employees to be hired into their companies. Employees will be likely to stay longer (Employee satisfaction and Employee Longevity)
    • Location — Businesses to locate within the inner cities for employment pools, for job creation, for ease of distribution, ease of access.
