We aim to establish a series of member owned; constructed and operated sustainable Resort Communities.
Each member pays a joining fee of $5000, which entitles the member the right to reside on any location and contribute to the community by carrying out a predetermined activity during four hours - five days a week or eighty hours a month.
Membership fee may be paid in full or as repayment over five years. Rent accommodation from $100 to $130 per week.
Management and planning are largely computer/internet based and utilizing the web based Participatory Decision Making Process called 1062.org
Building a series of Resort Communities to provide members a secure tenure within a larger community. Those people maybe wondering what they will do for the next twenty to forty or more years on this planet; where to do it and with whom.
This will be formed under normal company law and not as a cooperative. Although there maybe Coops established within the community.
Each community may consist of upto 300 residents, formed as say 3 groups of 10 member Families totaling 30 member clusters or Tribes. Each Tribal Cluster could have its own Pool and Recreational Facilities. A cluster can be made up of members either Activity or Interest Specific or Multi Activity / Interest oriented.
With upto 300 members, a financial commitment of $15 million will be contributed over ten years. This should allow for a loan of say $3million to purchase the land and commence construction of basic facilities.
The Business Name is registered as Living Villages Cooperative Housing.
A site at www.groups.msn.com/Sustainable Lifestyles Australia is set up and has about 30 members. This is a temporary forum for members to communicate.
Website www.1062.org is to be used for members to submit Propositions to various Issues and vote for the most appropriate Proposition.
Target groups include people who normally volunteer for Forest; Wild Life and Sand Dune Regeneration; Overseas Aid; Greens and other people who are willing to get off their bums and do something together and for each other.
Contacting people with moderate computer skills, who can assist to the setting up of the tools to operate forums and discussion groups and create a Virtual Village Voice, to thrash out all aspects of the concept, before any serious money is invested. When the Virtual Village is accomplished, the the Living Village can be established.
Joining the group is restricted to: Provisionally during first 3-12 months
The venue is wheelchair accessible.
$5000 payable over 5 years
