to just buy 1000 acres somewhere and incorporate your own town. I can think of areas you can get 1000 acres for around $1 million. Create your own electricity so you aren't reliant on big energy and go from there. Each person who wants to live in said town pays $x for an acre of land for their house. x amount of acres will be set aside for commercial, farming, energy, etc. Each landowner has a say in the local government.
I think this route makes more sense than spending $19 million and you are still part of a city where a politician(s) can ruin everything you are trying to build.
