PLACE - WHERE PEOPLE LIVE THEIR LIVES / WHERE EVERYTHING HAPPENS
Everything happens in PLACE, it is where people live and work and play, and, it is where economic activity consumes resources, degrades the environment and produces products that a needed and wanted by people.
The performance of place depends a lot on the people or human capital of the place ... their culture, their character, their skills and a host of other people characteristics.
The performance of place also depends on the natural capital of the place. Over the course of history places have been successful when human capital and natural capital complement each other.

PLACE - AN EFFECTIVE LOCUS FOR ANALYTICAL METRICS
A PLACE does not move ... it stays in the same location for ever. This is a basis for reliable comparative performance over time.
TPB Note: I grew up in Okehampton, Devon, England around 70 years ago. Its population was a little over 4,000 people, up from about 3,500 in the 1930s. Almost a thousand years before the place had a population of a few hundred as recorded in the Domesday book prepared by William the Conqueror after the Norman Conquest of 1066.
The persistence of a place contrasts with the ephemeral nature of much of modern metrics.
In the official development assistance (ODA) world occupied by the World Bank, other Development Banks, the United Nations and NGOs, a common form of performance evaluation is the monitoring of 'projects'. Projects exist for a short time, sometimes as little as a year, and rarely more than 5 years and they can also be mobile ... two characteristics that make accountability incredibly difficult.

The Emerging Smart City
Cities are incredibly complicated with millions of systems serving the population ... with little or no coordination.
Most cities have grown organically over a very long time with only very rudimentary planning ... and in many cases planning with purpose that has been anti-social rather than pro-society.
But some change is happening.
It is anticipated that more than 80% of the world's population will live in urban settings in the very near future.
It is also likely that many major coastal cities will suffer more and more flooding as climate changes and sea level rises.

The Fourth Regional Plan for the New York-New Jersey-Connecticut Metropolitan Area ... Making the Region Work for All of Us
The tri-state region is home to a diverse population of 23 million people, a thriving economy, and unique natural resources. Across the New York-New Jersey-Connecticut metro - politan area, residents live in vibrant communities, share a common environment, and seek opportunities to better provide for their families. Yet the region is also fragmented into three states and hundreds of municipalities, which can lead to limited solutions and short-term thinking. As we look ahead to the many challenges of this century, it is time to agree on shared values that transcend political boundaries. To be true stewards of the region’s long-term success, we must define a new path to achieve greater equity and prosperity, improve the health of residents, and secure a more sustainable environment for everyone.

The Real Estate Industry
The real estate industry has many facets, and the behavior of the actors in this sector have a big role in shaping what happens in a city.

THE HUMAN CAPITAL DIMENSION OF PLACE
POPULATION / PEOPLE are a most important asset and especially young people, and those with capacity to contribute
The STATE of the POPULATION is a major element in the STATE of the PLACE. This is both about QUALITY OF LIFE and STANDARD OF LIVING of the PEOPLE which depends on access to a variety of PRODUCTS (goods and services) which has many COST OF LIVING components as well as their ability to CONTRIBUTE
QUALITY OF LIFE / STANDARD OF LIVING

... FOOD
... WATER
... SHELTER
... CLOTHING / STUFF
... ACCESS TO OTHER SERVICES like retail stores, gas stations, healthcare, childcare, eldercare, education, roads / transport, utilities, public safety, etc is an important factor in the STATE of the POPULATION
... ACCESS TO EMPLOYMENT - income and jobs are important in quality of life and the ability to pay for essential needs and other things needed for quality of life.
... ACCESS TO CULTURE / RELIGION / RECREATION
... ACCESS TO SOCIAL SAFETY NET
POTENTIAL TO CONTRIBUTE

... PARENTING and other family oriented care-giving is a valuable part of QUALITY OF LIFE
... ACCESS TO EMPLOYMENT - II provides an organizational setting for people to CONTRIBUTE and to be paid for it
... PRO-BONO VOLUNTEERING is another way to make CONTRIBUTION.

THE NATURAL CAPITAL DIMENSION OF PLACE
LOCATION / LAND / WATER / AIR / CLIMATE / ECOSYSTEM SERVICES / BIODIVERSITY / NATURAL RESOURCES
LAND In its natural state the LAND has certain natural characteristics which are changed when there is 'development'. In most cases the NATURAL VALUE will decline as the BUILT VALUE increases. BOTH must be taken into consideration.
LAND - PEOPLE BUILT LAND USE for HUMAN ACTIVITIES, BUILT STRUCTURES, PROCESSES. ETC. ranging from large scale crop mono-culture agriculture, to mining, to deforestation, to mangrove destruction.
LAND - ECOSYSTEM SERVICES are essential for a natural equilibrium but totally ignored in the pursuit of profit. They much be valued and they must be numbered.
LAND - NATURAL BIODIVERSITY has been billions of years in the making, and might be just hundreds of years in reaching extinction on a massive scale. This much be valued and must be numbered.
WATER There are both FLOWS of WATER and STOCKS of WATER. There is also the QUALITY of the WATER and what it can be used for. Some WATER is CONSUMED and some WATER is contaminated. Contaminated water may be treated or it may simply flow downstream through a watershed doing damage as it goes.
AIR / ATMOSPHERE - LOCAL POLLUTION has a direct impact on human health at the local level.
AIR / ATMOSPHERE - ATMOSPHEIRC POLLUTION including Ozone depletion, Greenhouse Gases which fundamentally change the way in which solar energy reaches earth caused by emissions of OO2 and other gases at a local level but with global consequences like global warming, acid rain, etc.
CLIMATE determines many aspects of what is possible in a PLACE. Some places have rainfall, others do not. Some have temperate climate (moderate temperatures) while others are tropical and others are very cold. Some places have violent weather events ... hurricanes, tornadoes, cyclones, etc, Climate change is an existential threat because many established bio-systems cannot adjust rapidly enough and will become extinct.

FINANCIAL CAPITAL


FINANCIAL WEALTH / FINANCIAL INCOME / BALANCE OF RECEIPTS AND EXPENDITURES
FINANCIAL WEALTH that is owned by PEOPLE in the PLACE, or by INSTITUTIONAL STRUCTURES in the PLACE that BENEFIT the PLACE.
FINANCIAL FLOWS - I that either weaken or strengthen the FINANCIAL STATE of the PLACE as they flow in or out of the PLACE.
FINANCIAL FLOWS - II that are required internally (taxes and expenditures) in order to maintain the PLACE or improve the PLACE
ECOSYSTEM FOR BANKING AND FINANCE has become a critical part of the socio-enviro-economic system enabling money based transactions. A similar system is needed to facilitate value based banking.

PLACE CONTRIBUTES TO THE QUALITY OF LIFE FOR PEOPLE
PEOPLE contribute to quality of life that is, family and friends, community, society ... all interacting in the place
It is also about what the NATURAL CAPITAL of the PLACE offers
It is also about the PEOPLE BUILT STRUCTURES and SYSTEMS ... the CREATED CAPITAL of many sorts that are in the PLACE and facilitate much of what goes on in the PLACE and especially the organizations that employ people and provide products and services needed to support quality of life.
PLACE CONTRIBUTES TO THE QUALITY OF LIFE FOR PEOPLE

Community-Youth-Wellbeing-Alexandria-2015
A 44 paghe report ... The commitment of the City of Alexandria to its children and youth is best exemplified by its America’s Promise designation as one of the 100 Best Communities for Young People. That honor has been awarded for five consecutive years. Because of such a commitment, increasing numbers of the city’s youth are thriving, as demonstrated by:
• An increase of 5 percentage points, between 2008 and 2012, in the on-time graduation rates of ACPS students.
• An increase of 12 percentage points, between the 2006-07 school year and the 2011-12 school year, in PALS-K scores, which measure a child’s readiness for kindergarten.
• A decrease of 20 percent in the teen pregnancy rate between 2010 and 2011, marking the lowest teen pregnancy rate in the city in more than 15 years.
The Alexandria Children and Youth Well-Being Profile is a statistical snapshot that marks an essential step toward the development of the City’s first Children and Youth Master Plan. It indeed takes a village to raise a child. The successful execution of that mission mandates that all citizens be informed, consider the issues raised by this data, and lend their perspectives and expertise to crafting solutions.

Community Wellbeing from the Ground Up ... Austrialia indigenus people ... a Yawuru example
A 114 page report written by Mandy Yap and Eunice Yu. ... the product of a unique partnership between the Bankwest Curtin Economics Centre, the ANU’s Centre for Aboriginal Economic Policy Research, the Kimberley Institute, and most importantly, the Yawuru community. Our motivation in supporting the research project, first and foremost, has been to ensure that the voices of Yawuru women and men are heard in conceptualising notions of indigenous wellbeing. The title of the report – Community Wellbeing from the Ground Up – captures the essence of a research approach based on the co-production of knowledge, with Yawuru women and men articulating their own conceptions of wellbeing founded on the Yawuru concept of good life – or mabu liyan.

Organization and Organizations
There is also organization. Without organization, people are severely limited ... but with organization people can do collectively many things that they cannot do on their own.
Organizations ... High performance economic activities are invariably carried out by organizations. It is possible for individuals to do significant creative work, but production needs organization and organized investment.
Management System / Organizational Framework
More than anything else, a system is needed that allows the people of a community to self organize and optimize how the resources of the community are best used. The foundation of such as system is a set of appropriate performance metrics.
This is the goal of TrueValueMetrics (TVM), which is a system of metrics for socio-economic measurement that builds on the two key ideas: (1) the basic concepts of money accountancy used by organizations; and (2) the idea that this can be modified so that it has community focus rather than organization focus, embracing accounting for value as well as simply accounting for money.
TVM note: The key concepts of money accountancy used by organizations are (1) the idea of double entry; and (2) the organization of data into accounts that either relate to operations, or relate to the balance sheet. These ideas make it possible to draw conclusions about performance without having a full set of data but without compromising the reliability of the conclusion.
The system of accountancy that is used by organizations record money transactions and prepare reports to the stakeholders of the organization. There is a tremendous pool of experience associated with this work ... but it has the weakness that the impact on society (human/social capital) has never been part of the system which also has excluded impact on environment (natural capital).
Granularity
Even though a community is simpler ... it is still quite complex, but this complexity can be understood. Though there may be many relationships, they are relatively simple, and therefore, understandable. At the community level people have names, and are not merely part of a statistical pool. Activities are tangible, and accounting for costs and results is an exercise that everyone with interest can understand. The community is where progress dynamics are easier to understand and where measurement has more clarity.

Definitions for TrueValueMetrics
Drafted around 2004
Issue
Community
Basic observation
Community has been ignored by ORDA organizations. Lip service is paid to community and participative processes with rapid visits by experts. Most communities have seen very little of development importance in past sixty years. A vast missing link in the development process .
Prevailing response
A growing amount of “participative” development assistance, but the process is still controlled by the donors and the “top” of the socio-economic hierarchy
A better response
Community Centric Sustainable Development (CCSD) puts the community at the center of economic progress. It builds on the idea that not only “all politics is local”, but that “all living is local”. A key part of CCSD is using a set of metrics to measure activity cost and the related values within the community.
