Have an awesome idea?

Build new cities in America! Increase housing supply and help our nation grow!

Imagine if you built new cities in desirable locations and you could start with a clean slate? No zoning laws, no planning commissions, no NIMBYism (Not in my backyard) homeowners preventing the growth needed to ensure we Americans have affordable housing across all income levels. Perhaps we could find land in America where farmers and large landowners could be enticed to sell their land. We could build case-study cities utilizing all the knowledge and wisdom urban planning gained over several decades and try building great cities from scratch instead of trying to retrofit existing ones.

The president is looking for opportunities to restore the American Dream. I believe this could be an exciting way to work towards that goal. It'll create jobs and the US Government might even make a profit from the land sales once they get the city up and running.
