    Project One - Big ass college campus with the best of the best as the teachers and huge amount of advertising money. College tuition is free for the first five years, or whatever is required to get tons and tons of attention from students across the nation.

    Project Two - Widespread gigabit or higher internet infrastructure, along with much wider roads and lots of highway infrastructure to allow for an expanding city and new businesses.

    Project Three - Massive solar/wind/nuclear power plant to supplant coal/fossil fuel generation.

    I can't specify my city as I want to remain private, but I think the above three would be a boon.

    This is good intent, but what happens when something like China refusing import of junk happens and the recycling market is now filled to the brim and cannot accept more devices? Something formerly re-usable is now bricked and going to end up in a landfill.

    I think this is a bad idea in general, and instead a "trade in" program with the company re-selling the old models for cheap would be far better.
