Community Economic Development through Self Reliance, Sustainability and Empowerment

A lot of what I’m addressing in my community of Maple Valley, Washington, can be just as applicable in any other community around the world: http://amusingcommunityperspective.wordpress.com/2011/05/20/maple-valley-economic-development/

Community economic development can be achieved and expedited with pre approved permits where applicable.   This would also facilitate fulfilling the community’s vision and expedite the development process.  Alternative financing for schools or other community needs can be facilitated through a Community Development Cooperative and Community Foundation.

The keystone to this development is the need to provide adequate broadband coverage through an open access network which is the key intent of this website.
