To go along the same lines as others recenting posted. How about some input for ideas on how best to construct a community that will work? location: ? preferably a mild climate area 1000 acres or so? object: To form a corporation of like minded people for the purpose of living in a community dedicated to kinder times. Travel by horse and buggy, bicycle, etc. A corporate business that would supply members with group healthcare, home-schooling, among other community affairs. Corporate business would be to produce, grow, make commodities for sale. ex: vegetables, eggs, meat, plants, flowers, fruits, soap, jellies, craft items, fire wood, ? labor, etc (you name it) modern equipment could be used in the business. But, we would try to stay away from automobile travel within the community. (It seems only right for the cash investors to control the company) Shares of stock issued to investors at $1 for 1 share 1000 shares = elder status with 1 vote per thousand shares. elders only would vote on essential dealings per the corporation. all persons could serve on committees to deal with minor issues.--> up to elders if committee can't solve problem. husbands and wives or (live-in mates) would receive equal shares for their investment. In respect of a divorce or break-up, remaining member would only keep his shares. spouse could stay in a different place or leave community, but shares would be held for them until they return. A death would transfer shares as will explains. (object is not to reward a spouse for divorce or separation) new members would be sponsored by committee and voted on by the elders. The community would be mapped out like a town to give each home their own space. Small one story cabins or with lofts, probably wood with metal roofing. ideas? profits from business would be dispersed by giving shares of stock to all members by some proportion, along with payment in cash (to be agreed on) ultimately giving non investors some equity and possible status in corporation. With that money, they could buy stock at the $1 a share at anytime. A possible company store to have on hand, over the counter medicines, food items, essential items that would be given out and charged against future payments from corp. some sort of company punch card or ? Constructive ideas or input or changes????
