[UPDATE] A new name has emerged from thin air (no seriously, it’s from studying trends and past projects), and the name is called USURP. No, this is not the word for “taking a position of power or importance illegally or by force”, but, it is a acronym meaning The Urban and SUburban Renewal Project, with its goal of being usurp–being “taking a position of importance”–in which case, urban and suburban issues–by forcing other people to think about their urban and suburban lifestyles and find ways to improve them by reducing our automobile dependence, shopping locally (not within a city, but within a county or region, as much as possible), and promoting businesses that employ local workers and use local produce, as well as simulating such changes using SimCity 4, ArcGIS, and other programs.
