What’s Happening


In January 2018, the TTMADRS board held a series of all-day meetings with consultants, Action Pact, and Founders to determine cultural, physical and financial design.

Action Pact uses an integrative approach (IPA – Integrative Prefeasibility Analysis)  to form a team responsible for developing a project plan that is designed to provide the optimal mix of architectural, operational, cultural, and financial variables. This approach is done by bringing our board and founders together with a group of professionals from a variety of disciplines and is meant to give us a clear view of the potential for developing our community:

  • A sense of what kind of community we want to create
  • An architectural footprint
  • Guidance on what kind of land to buy
  • A project scope, budget and timeline
  • An operational budget with a 10-year forecast
  • A decision about ownership structure (for-profit, non-profit, cooperative)
  • A business plan
