If you ever saw the movie Independence Day there was a scene where the computer guy looked at the President and said, "They're using our own satellites against us". Well, that is what A21 is doing, using our own government against us, at all levels, through regulations as well as other methods.
Agenda 21 Sustainable Development has been incorporated into all federal legislation which is now in every state's legislation and embedded in local government. Remembering that the goal is to get humans out of rural areas and into high density cities, regulations have been the primary method of forcing this action. As everyone is probably aware one of our major problems today is the amount of regulations literally strangling America. Well, think Agenda 21.
Staying with the human settlement issue one of the first attacks on American cities was indoctrinating city planners through the APA, a professional organization/NGO in partnership with the UN. City planners would be key in transforming cities into high density populations. They typically work for Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPO) and city government.
Every city with a population greater than 50k has an MPO, COMPASS is the local MPO for Boise and Nampa. If you are reading this from another Idaho city and your population is greater than 50k you have an MPO. Through MPOs Agenda 21 has successfully manipulated how a city's future growth, planning, and transportation occurs, using our own system against us.
As a side note, MPOs were created in the early 1960s to coordinate planning in urban areas for roads and other urban issues. It is a federally required transportation planning body of government officials who are responsible for transportation planning and programming. An MPO is responsible for the development of long range transportation and transportation improvement for its metropolitan planning area. The adoption of these documents is a prerequisite for the receipt of both federal transit and federal highway funding, meeting those regulatory requirements as well.
With city planners indoctrinated into the development of high density cities, federal highway regulations would naturally follow to manipulate city transportation patterns. There are a multitude of highway regulations from the federal government down to your local highway department. Each one of them contain Agenda 21 goals for the creation of mass transportation, bike pathways, paths for walking, transportation corridors, and keeping roads away from habitat in order to protect the environment.
Boise is being transformed into a human settlement via manipulation of transportation, among other methods. If you look at the COMPASS document, "Communities in Motion" you will see all of the UN/Agenda 21 terms used. In May 2013, the Idaho Department of Lands blocked a proposal by the Valley Regional Transit (VRT) to put in a transit center near the Capitol citing problems with increased traffic and congestion. VRT has received $9.4 million in federal grants and $2 million from the Capital City Development Corporation (redevelopment corporations are used as another method to implement Agenda 21) to build what they describe as a "multi-modal transit center" (translated means biking, walking, mass transport) as a downtown hub for their buses.
That federal grant money along with the federal highway dollars requires this type of transportation change in cities, the hidden goal being the accommodation of a future high density population. The guise is protection of the environment because of less car use.
To summarize, through the APA city planners have been indoctrinated into planning high density cities supported by transportation that promotes walking, biking, and mass transportation. Federal and state highway regulations, and federal grants all have the same Agenda 21 requirements to transform a city's transportation system which in turn supports high density populations, or human settlements.
All local officials attend meetings with COMPASS or the MPO in your area. Contact your local mayor, city council members, and county commissioners. Let them know you oppose the current direction of city planning in Boise and surrounding towns. Attend city council meetings and keep informed of plans they are making for your city and meet with your local city planner to educate them. If you have any questions or documentation is needed to support your opposition please contact us.
