Planning Great Cities for the Future
Zennoni and Future Cities
January 10th, 2012, through Linda Dillon, channel for the Council of Love
Kathleen: Please tell me about Halion.
Zennoni: Halion is a ray but long ago, Halion was a planet.
It was a beautiful planet filled with buildings that you have never seen, crystal cities and gardens.
It was very verdant, in some ways similar to Earth but different, and not of this galaxy.
What happened with Halion and I was part of this, was that it evolved, we are talking a very long time ago, in your timeframe, about a million years ago, it evolved to sheer energy. There are several planets that have done this you know.
So, you think of what you are going through on the Earth plane right now with Gaia, and the evolutionary process of Ascension, well, on Halion, we went through this, too, over a long period, obviously of time.
Eventually, the vibration of the planet and of everybody upon the planet evolved to such a state that we released matter. We became sheer energy and we decided as a unified collective that we would travel the multiverse.
We are known as the Halion Engineers. That is why we are so good with computers, and what we do is, we help or we construct and when we say construct we mean, yes, spaceships but societies, buildings, infrastructures.
You see it is not sufficient to simply have — and this is what so many have missed, and that we can help correct — you cannot have, for example, a city filled with beautiful buildings unless there is a plan.
But people tend to think of city planning as physical land use and mass but of course there is a spirit and an infrastructure of community and support that is also required.
So, we assist in the building of that, the construction of that, as well, but we Love physical construction, cities of light, planets, well you would think of them as asteroids because they are not organic.
We build things and we travel the Universe, but at that time when we evolved to sheer energy, I also returned to the Heart of One, and at that time I took on the responsibility and the joy, the honour of being your guide. I am much older than you, and I am also from the future.
I Am Ancient and I Am also of the Future.

Notes from podcast
pandemic shifted city planning
within our neighbourhoods things missing became apparent
parks and cafes within walking distance
we began to imagine doing everything in our neighbourhood
old model we created mono cultures
where we live – housing
where we work – shops, etc
we separated uses out
new model – mix things up
lower environmental footprints
complete community, everything within 15 min
how do we change the old cities? — opportunity to transform
adapt our streets – many are very wide
schoolyards often have lots of land
add a little more housing density
“housing emergency” — time to do something about it Now
population growth/adequate housing
co-housing, more rental, diversity of housing, different ways to deliver housing, new ownership models
social housing – deeply affordable housing tends to entrench poverty, gov’t incentives for private sector, public policy directives for the private sector – scale up programs
reckoning with anti-housing groups
automobiles and traffic — rush hour toll on health: mono culture
housing close to work, neighbourhoods where we can do things on foot: doctor, dentist, restaurants, local bar, less things in the car
rethink how we use land, less highways – arrest that pattern
regional transport systems
people being able to do more things where they live
time for change – most people see it
not affordable any more because of escalating home values – appeal to peoples’ better angels – paint picture of better future
people living in parks — no one likes this — protecting our high value property doesn’t work
“let’s add affordable housing in my neighbourhood” welcoming immigrants and young people – affordable housing
Youthful Cities – recognition that if we are not attracting young people, our city will die, young people are the future
villages in cities – happen organically with immigrant arrival because of access of housing
policy reasons – why things happen – ex. Walmart locations
mental health of residents – relationship to green-space and knowing our neighbours adds resilience – walkable neighbourhoods work
