Rochester 2020 - Sustainable and resilient

Hello agents,

The here are the first steps that we took ten years ago to make Rochester a Sustainable city.

Phase 1- increase tax base for infrastructure improvements. This step is one of the most controversial plans (that is real and is resisted by most in Rochester) but needs to be done. You need to move from a to a Metropolitan government. Currently the city is home to roughly 217,000 people, but an additional 700,000 + live in the surrounding suburbs of Greece, Ogden, Chili, Brighton, Penfield, Pittsford, and a few more. If you don't roll them all under one tax umbrella, then your denying the city the the ability to spend on infrastructure wisely.

Phase 2- get rid of duplicated jobs and infrastructure to increase efficiency - yes, this means playing hardball and removing all the police chiefs of each suburb, all the fire chiefs, all the the jobs that do not need to exist in multiples once you have a unified metropolitan government.

Phase 3- Increase Green space downtown - by increasing th e green space through vertical living walls, vertical farming, roof top farming, and open a****sable

Phase 4- upgrade the public transportation system to encompass the suburbs, use alternative fuels, add a light rail system, make bikes and walking a priority for the area.

Phase 5- flood the inner loop roadway (not hard to do, just let the river back in) and create a canal, there by giving a water course to the city that can act as an additional cooling feature for those days in the future when heat emergencies occur.

Phase six - the high falls Hydro energy center, using the high falls drop, a energy generating planet using hyrdo, a system could be put in place. This is a natural fit.

Phase 7 - comprehensive food security plan making use of the Rochester Public market as a command and control area for outlying farms in the county.

Fourth of July on the Lake

This past weekend was the annual celebration at the lake house in Connecticut. It is amazing that the lake is still so clear and beautiful after all these years. The watershed association has done a wonderful job protecting these waters from the damaging effects of development.The wood grill was finally ready to cook on, so we didn't miss the propane tank fueled grill anymore. The food actually tasted fresher than in the past and was easy to keep fueled.Dad was very proud of the solar hybrid…See More

Stinging Nettle

In this blog post I will focus on a plant that is abundant in our nature, and which is immensely nutritious. It's of course the Stinging Nettle.

In addition the Stinging Nettle consists…See More

FutureToday is 2020/1/1. It is just like yesterday. The war is still continuing. It has started since 2010. In 2010, that year was a horrible year. Almost every energy ran out. Every country’s governments were crushed down at the same time. There were riots everywhere. All of the big company’s bosses were killed xdeadx in the riots. Troops fought each other everywhere. Food was bought up xawayx at once. There were no more food supplies in any shops. The economy was all crushed down. All the…See More

public servants

The exchange works directly for state and public workers and servants. It gives them credit in exchange for the amount of public work they contribute to the community. The more constructive they are based off a base rate the more credit they recieve.
