Beaverton, Oregon is the first of 100 cities across the nation to be indoctrinated into the Obama administration’s Revitalizing Roundtable initiative to collaborate local government leaders throughout the US and federal program leaders with senior officials from federal agencies.

At the function held on February 14th Jay Williams, White House deputy director of intergovernmental affairs and Mathy Stanislaus, assistant administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) spoke to those gathered.

The meeting was designed to bolster a “partnership with regional entities, the state, key federal agencies, the private sector and other stakeholders to support local businesses, attract new jobs, create entrepreneurial opportunities, boost advanced manufacturing and build a sustainable community.”

Schemes were devised to provide for trust building with a focus on public-public and public-private partnerships (PPPs) to facilitate sustainable business development and indoctrinate the ideology of Agenda 21 into the social meme for future projects.

The city of Beaverton was been awarded $1.6 million from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), under the Community Transformation Grant Program (CTGP), to construct a new governmental health center for the local community to utilize. In conjunction with the Beaverton Urban Redevelopment Agency (BURA), Beaverton city officials are hoping to be granted more funds from the EPA’s SmartGrowth Technical Assistance Grant program.

121116_miniapartment_113-660x440Senator Suzanne Bonamici praised officials from the city of Beaverton for their participation in this initiative for “sustainable revitalization”.

In the report commissioned by Nexus Community Partners, entitled “Engaging Community for Sustainable Revitalization: Key Trends, Strategies and Recommendations” the focus on “address[ing] social and economic challenges” in urban cities across the nation must be directed to the engagement of “community revitalization”.

Through sustainability as a core philosophy, and coercion of community participation, residents of any city could be made to accept a lifestyle in a densely population urban center under the pretext of environmental consciousness.

The Living Cities project is funded through private donors and financial institutions “to improve the lives of low-income people and the cities where they live.”

This organization is headed by:

  • Audrey Choi, Head of Morgan Stanley’s Environment, Social Finance, and Community Reinvestment Group
  • Martin S. Cox, Group Executive of JPMorgan Chase and is the Head of Community Development Banking (CDB)
  • Dr. Pablo Farias, former Ford Foundation’s representative for Mexico and Central America
  • Jo Ann Jenkins, president of AARP
  • Andrew Plepler, Global Corporate Social Responsibility and Consumer Policy Executive, Bank of America and former senior vice president of Housing and Community Initiatives at the Fannie Mae Foundation
  • Pamela P. Flaherty, President & CEO, Citi Foundation; Director, Corporate Citizenship, CitiGroup
  • Nicholas Turner, Managing Director of the Rockefeller Foundation

While working with families victimized by subprime lending and the foreclosures debacle, Living Cities has 10 projects that acquire properties to keep their intrinsic value up and discourage the breakdown of ability for future investments by potential stakeholders.

With respect to affordable living for displaced families, the advent of the micro apartment is quickly becoming a viable option for those who have no other choice.

628x471Last year, micro-apartments scheme was championed by New York’s Mayor Michael Bloomberg. These “studio and one-bedroom apartments” are no bigger than 275 to 300 sq ft. These tiny living spaces are smaller than currently allowed by building regulations, according to a statement by Bloomberg’s office; however the zoning regulations will be waived in over to construct the first of many compact pack ‘em and stack ‘em housing model in the city-owned area of Kips Bay.

The intention is to construct an area in NY that accommodates restricted housing space, eliminates car use in favor for walking and bicycling and promotes mass transit. Herding the expanding population into dense areas will smaller living spaces will instill the new class of poor and obligate their psychological transition toward accepting the Agenda 21 megacity concept.

In San Francisco single individuals are rent their very own 1st generation Agenda 21 two hundred and twenty-two square foot apartment (if the closet and bathroom are factored into the allocated living space). The intention of these “shoe box homes” are to house marginalize the general public and train them to accept less living space in the name of affordability.

In Boston, one developer exclaims that renters only need 450 square feet to live in and anything else is a waste of space. In the Seaport District Mayor Thomas M. Menino says that young professionals will want to live in these mini-apartments because of their exceptional waterfront views. Menino’s $100 million endeavor called the Boston Wharf Tower is a “project will help turn this neighborhood into a vibrant, 24-hour mixed-use community.”

In these units there is barely room for furniture, so designers made sure that there would be a pull-out couch and a comparatively small monthly rental to justify asking the Bostonian public to live in a personal Agenda 21 prison.

Micro apartments in downtown Portland, Oregon have been built with the 150 unit Freedom Center Apartments designed for families. These apartments are between 267 – 385 square feet and cost $735 – $1050 a month.
The concept behind the design is “living lightly and leaving less of a footprint”.
