Problem:

Veterans Green Villages Inc. Prospectus ­ Long Form

Detroit is a severely blighted City lacking public services such as housing blight remediation and rebuild, municipal waste removal, and jobs training, with immense numbers of fully capable Veterans ready, willing, and able to work.

History:

In 1950, Detroit saw its highest population: 2.5 million. This number dropped to 650,000 as of 2010 Census. WWII had established the City of the Arsenal of Democracy and created the foundation of America’s redevelopment post WWII via the Auto Industry & freeways systems. Unfortunately, Detroit invented two things that almost destroyed her: the inner­city freeway and the idea of an accessible suburb to an urban environment using that system. This unfortunately isolated community citizens from transportation, jobs, and cultural resources.

Scope of Need:

Although the City is currently experiencing a resurgence with focused redevelopment downtown and basic improvements for City services, what remains is 110 square miles of blighted neighborhoods built for WWII era factory workers.

Opportunity:

The Veterans Green Village (http://veteransgreenvillages.com/) is made up of 5 bordering properties at the corner of Burgess & Orchard streets in Detroit's Old Redford District in the Northwest side. Heretofore unincorporated, it is the epicenter of Veterans CleanTech Forward Operations remediation, farming, disaster response, and grease removal Training; with in­kind direct donations supporting applicable certifications in hand by Veteran manager Gordon Soderberg.

As a CleanTech Training Center for these requisite services, anchored in the City needing these services most, by the Green Veteran most capable of helming them, to pass on to other Veteran Trainers, The Veterans Green Village is positioned to optimally structure, train, & execute Builds of Materials (BOM) and Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) for various Clean Technologies deployed & serviced by Green Veterans nationwide.
