One of our prepper must have resources is the LDS Preparedness manual. I have one and it has been an amazing resource. I ran across an article on New Vista Communities. These are a dream of a Mormon millionaire. It is an interesting concept. Of course the people near the first projected New Vista Community are freaking out but all the key words are there- low impact, self sustaining, mode of transportation will be walking. David Hall a rich businessman from Utah has been buying up properties in VT and the residents seem quite upset. Mr Hall has acknowledge that it will take billions and years for his dream community to be built. Development based on Mormonism founder's plan finds few fans Main web site for New Vista- The NewVista Foundation Summary Description of NewVistas I do not think this is anything new. I know that Facebook has a campus that is expanding and will have housing on-site soon. Google has a Googleplex that offers what a person needs in a contained area. Is this how our future cities will be. I will admit that this is very interesting in the whole self-sustaining aspect. I think there would be a lot to learn from New Vista plans.
