Dear All, I am a social and cultural planner working for a local Council authority in an urban area 30 km from central Melbourne (Australia). The community is one of the most multicultural area of Australia with very strong family/community networks. I am interested in exploring co-housing as a way of achieving low cost/ affordable housing for the community as part of a housing strategy being developed for the city . Has anyone had experience where a local authority has initiated/facilitated co-housing to this end? Thank you FRANCES GRINDLAY, Research, Planning and Development Unit E-mail : fgrind [at] cgd.vic.gov.au -----Original Message----- From: cohousing-l [at] freedom.mtn.org [mailto:cohousing-l [at] freedom.mtn.org]On Behalf Of Deb Smyre Sent: Friday, 8 January 1999 8:57 Subject: Re: Cohousing in the Media Robin Williams' latest movie is "Patch Adams", based on the life of Dr. Hunter Adams, founder of the Gesundheit! Institute in West Virginia. The movie depicts the creation of the Institute, and interested folks (like me) who research the name will find it's a cohousing community offering free medical care. Dr. Adams' book "Gesundheit!" contains an extensive bibliography which includes a lengthy section devoted to "Community Living". Great resources and great media links for promoting cohousing.
