One of the best local ideas I’ve seen in a long time is the proposal to found a new city on open space in rural Boulder County called Sustainaville.
This will be an entirely new town with all of the current government priorities already taken into account from the beginning. Complete social justice will be embedded in the town’s lifestyle and with an extremely compassionate citizenry, there will be no pushback against the leader’s agendas. The entire city will be sugar-free and most residential housing will consist of co-ops surrounded by tiny homes for those who want to age in place in gentle infill.
The town’s leaders will be comprised of former Boulder City Council members who will be housed in the Sirklejirc co-op. And, in order to ensure that Sirklejirc’s vision of equality is properly enacted for everyone, at least two city planners will be required for every resident.
