Rural System
  Sustained rural lands; sustained profits

Welcome to the Home Page of Rural System

I hope that you will visit this page often so that you can link from it to its many ideas, resources, and benefits for you, your loved ones, and associates.

This web site shows you the design for a complex system that can improve land use and the conditions for thousands of people living in rural communities ... and those depending upon them. It describes a modern, diverse natural resource-based corporation. (It has not yet been incorporated.) That private for-profit conglomerate is a system of over 60 proposed enterprises or groups. They share resources and provide mutual gains, while exploiting the profitability of a set of ideas and resources when they are well managed over a very long time. Some are "high-tech" endeavors.

The conglomerate achieves sustained profits through optimizing decisions with computer help and using a carefully conceived set of techniques and principles. It exploits millions of dollars in past research results. It works with private land owners. It has a common leadership group and many outdoor as well as indoor enterprises. Staff are motivated by profits as well as the happy consequences to people of beautiful, healthful living environments.

First centered in the mid-Atlantic region of the US, the enterprise is international in scope and action. With a pivotal headquarters, the corporation is unlimited in working areas or practical groups.

Rural System is highly accountable. It uses financial gains from superior management to preserve some lands and waters, restore others, and improve all of it. Make no mistake; management is essential for the longrun. Few other efforts seem to have worked well so it time for implementing the concepts of Rural System

Major proposals with revisions to meet local conditions (and I'm willing to re-do similar work for groups willing to explore actively these ideas):

Rural System concepts re-designed for Marie Cirillo and the Woodland Community Trust of Clairfield, Tennessee - Project Pivotal-Rig

Rural System, Inc. concepts designed, edited, and expanded for Rural Nelson, citizens interested in maintaining the rural character of Nelson County, Virginia

The Pivotal Project submitted to the Industrial Development Agency, Craig County, Virginia

Special Addition
The /Draft Business Plan for Rural System

Proposals have been submitted to EPA for developing grade-school educational units linked to water quality analyses; to USDA for start-up work on general GIS and optimization software for small businesses, and Mr. Hayward Shepherd works on a distance-learning undergraduate wildlife course to be placed on a CD for later marketing. Bhaskar Sen, Calcutta, India works on Javascript units. RuraLives has been started with 3 entries.

Maybe we can work together for the good of us all ... for a long time.
