Date: Mon, 11 Jul 94 22:25 CDT To All: In our current state I feel that we should all attempt to communicate through our computers other than an On-Line service. I don't know how yet but, all Macs can do it now with me.Via Timbuk 2 or Claris. That way everything comes formatted and proper like. I hope all get the following material. It includes: Current Flyer Copy after 3 Drafts 7/8/94 !!! We have lost the original copy at the moment unless some else has it! Gary's rough version after the review of the first. The 1st draft of the news release. I have made contact with Mr. Ramone Triaz of the Gold Coast Planning Commission in Palm Bch. At the suggestion of Stefanos. We had short talk, and said he would call me later today. Which I won't be home. Bummer. Current Flyer Copy 7/8/94 Imagine your neighbors weren't just the people next door, but were people who shared your values and concerns. People you could rely on. This is the kind of community we're building at Broward Commons. And we're doing it together- as neighbors. It's called Co-Housing. And what it means is a group people working as a team to plan and design the kind of community they want for themselves and their families. By developing Broward Commons ourselves, we're able to do things the way we feel they should be done. Like using alternative energy and energy efficiency technologies. Building in an environmentally responsible manner. And limiting traffic for a quieter, safer neighborhood. All in a natural setting. If this sounds like the kind of future you want for your family, we'd like to tell you more. Just call .. Who knows, maybe we'll be neighbors. Flyer copy from the 'Copy Writers' Jones Advertising June 23, 1994 Faxed 6/27/94 GS "Maybe It Would Be Easier To Love Thy Neighbor If You Knew Thy Neighbor" Gary's Rough version after review. 6/26 Imagine that the people next door, weren't just the people next door. They're people who you share a common bond with. The goal to live in, and build a better, more sensible community for the family, for the future. Imagine living where everyone knows each other, and shared common values and shared a strong belief in the community. These are some of the things we are building at 'Browad Commons'. We are building, what is know as co-housing. A shared community. In Broward Commons you can own a home, become involved with the planning of it, and become a member of the state's first community designed for people, not automobiles. Live responsibly with the rest of us here. Design elements harness today's alternative energy and energy efficiency technologies. Take advantage of the way things need to be, and have to be for our future. If your interest is piqued by any of these notions, give Gary a call at 305-921-0434 or Mary at 305-433-0514. We're building our future on common ground. News Release 7/5 What is the current state of the development of the community? What is community? What is wrong with the way we live? What is the direction of community for the next century? How can we live more responsibly as citizens of this country. These are some of the questions we are addressing at what will become to be known as the future's community . We are building that future at a unique community called 'Broward Commons'. This community embraces socialization, not isolationism, and holds private space with equal importance. We want to live responsibly, so we are employing alternative energy, and super energy efficient construction. This is 'Cohousing'; and it's an innovative collaborative housing which was first developed in Denmark, where over 100 such communities now exist. About a dozen 'Cohousing' communities have been built in the United States over in the last several years. Many cohousing communities integrate these elements . . - A cluster of private dwellings around a pedestrian street. - Extensive common facilities including a centrally located common house designed for daily use as a dining room, gathering place, meeting hall, library, recreational facility, community store, including serving as a gene ral 'hub' of activity for the community. - Resident participation in the planning and development of the community and cooperative management of community affairs once the project is complete d. - An architectural design which encourages and contributes to a strong sense of community (as opposed to isolation, which is today's norm) and facilitates social interaction. - Owning private dwellings. One of the nation's top architects 'Stephanos Polyzoides from Los Angeles has agreed to work on the project. Mr. Polyzoides, one of the leaders of the architectural movement known as "The New Urbanism", has worked in the company of such renowned architects as Andres Duany, Elizabeth Plater-Zyberk, Peter Calthorpe, Victor Dover and Joseph Kohl. We, at 'Broward Commons', influenced by 'The New Urbanism' are building a 'Cohousing Community' in Broward County. We are addressing important the individual and the families needs our future. 'Broward Commons' taking ideas and philosophies from the way communities 'used' to be. Neighbors knowing neighbors, children playing and learning together with a safe and secure 'green' environment. Acutely aware of diminishing natural resources and the need to build, this and future communities, responsibly we are integrating a host of 'green' elements. - Solar Power. - Wind Power. - Gray Water - Cisterns - Heat Pumps - Superior energy efficiency. - Recycling and composting convenience. - Computer communication and management technologies. In addition, we will be creating a 'blueprint' in which to pass on our designs to other communities to help create a more communities like 'Broward Commons'.
