Dear Communitarian Friends, Happy new year! We are Miaya Sustaita and Loren Schein and we are sending you this letter to let you know that, after a couple of years of preparation, we are now ready to start gathering together a group of community-oriented folks who want to live in a cohousing village in Eugene. Currently, we own a wonderful piece of property bordered by the bike path on the Willamette River on the east and River Road on the west. As currently configured, there are two houses and a barn on the land and lots and lots of gardening space. Nearby is the park that runs along the river. A bike- and foot-bridge across the river to Valley River Center is just five minutes away. Downtown is a ten-minute ride by bicycle. Our understanding is that Eugene will allow 20 or more homes to be built on the 2.89 acres, which is ideal. We envision a cohousing neighborhood of between 20 and 30 small-to-medium sized privately-owned cottage-style homes with shared land and common facilities where we could together create a close-knit community of all ages and enjoy a simpler, friendlier lifestyle. Although the group that finally puts together the plan would be the designer of the community, our vision is of small-footprint homes, built green as much as possible and priced affordably: middle to lower income, depending on the availability of grants and low-interest loans to make this happen. We are planning a get-together on Sunday, January 23 at 2:00pm with those of you who are interested in this exciting adventure. Please contact us by e-mail or telephone to RSVP. Please forward this letter to your friends. Sincerely, Loren Schein & Miaya Sustaita LorenSchein [at] cs.com Miaya [at] aol.com (541) 349-8749
