Public and Community Developments

Community Developments are designed to support the local community and never make money for an individual. They are a good way to make a 'donation' that supports the whole of the local community. Developments with Community in the name do not ever generate an income for any individual. Their economic benefit is distributed among the community, and spread so thinly that it doesn't register in the Campaign Accounting Process, it is only listed for to create balance and raise taxes.

Public Developments may only be built by (or on behalf of) the local council. While they provide a community service, they also provide an income for the Council. The spare slots are often used by very small investors to help them 'get a foot on the ladder'.

Any of these developments can be gifted to a local community as a charitable act, so long as you have permission from the local council.

Note 1: A Public Jetty is a multifunctional jetty. Some of its capacity is given over to the community to support small fishing and working vessels. However, there is 'space' for three Fishing Boats (Econ +1), although one of those may be assigned Military Launches (Def +1). The main difference is that fishing boats at Public Jetties are a taxed resource and need permission from the Jetty Owner. A jetty with a Military Launch can act as the Core Defence that a village requires.

Note 2: A Public Serai is normally owned by the Council and is used to support the local community. There are three slots available for commercial Mule Trains, which may be suitable for small investors. The main difference is that mule trains stabled at Public Serai are a taxed resource and need permission from the Jetty Owner.

Note 3: An Alms House is intended to support the old or feeble members of the community, who cannot (for some reason) earn enough money to pay rent. It is balanced and takes up space in the settlement, However the Economic bonus is never paid of taxed, and income does directly to the community it serves.

Note 4 A Community Mill is owned by members of the community, who bring their own grain to be milled and prepared. It is balanced and takes up space in the settlement, However the Economic bonus is never paid of taxed, and income does directly to the community it serves.

Note 5 A Community Workshop is owned by members of the community, who bring their own produce to be prepared. It might be a Fish Processing Plant, a Winery, a Brewery or even a Leather Ship in an area with lots of hunters. However it is flavoured, it must be relevant to the community. It is balanced and takes up space in the settlement, However the Economic bonus is never paid of taxed, and income does directly to the community it serves.
