Values are bound primarily in individuals. Individuals who desire most to shape a better world for the many make future choices for decisive action.

Individuals all need to measure proportions of natural resources, clean land, air, water, food/fiber, energy, communication, giving and taking, mobility, structures, waste recycling, justice/security/safety, ecological/habitat harmony and most of all a group decision evaluation grade that benefits humankind and Nature.

Most of all individuals need to aspire toward using intellectual energy and skills with effective communication processes. Discovering and conceiving new materials, the making of new tools for mobility and useful shelter objects are necessary. The cultivation of seeds, roots, and shoots for flows of urban growth and change in between space and time, as well as, respecting waste recycling are all survival concerns. All these integrated factors must contain the beginning stories for realizing village, town, and city implementation and rewarded for added value success.

A socio/cultural understanding to provide the platform, framework and priority design sequence is important. Services and products that fit into the geography of indigenous natural settings for gained measures of value are paramount.

Infused mobility and settlement ideas start with individuals. Individuals evaluate information assessment of worth. The more one knows and grows in understanding, the more intelligent one becomes, the more one’s voice in concert with others help to make better group decisions. Citizen-leadership in cities with adept choices aids survival on Earth.

Individual thoughts are the ethics of actions in a community of leaders. Perception about urban design creation as to what is right depends on measures of value. Determinants assessed in the end of choices morphed by citizen-leadership in decision-making moments, cause positive change in the majority.

Situations, time periods and expectations of understanding oneself with others are anticipatory union elements that demand wisdom. Dependence on truths found in oneself and one another must bring together face-to-face debates resulting ultimately in reality conclusions for the issues at hand. Thus the key to future urban planning and design choice is a mix of capability to evaluate worth and added value for all individuals within the community.

The final urban design prayer to be made is “God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference. AMEN, AMEN, and AMEN.
