Hello all -- I just got my very own copy of Graham Meltzer's new book: Sustainable Community. It's lovely. And CHOCKED full of information. I first met Graham in 1997 I think. He was on his information gathering trip across the US. He had tons of data. I always wondered what was going to become of all that material. Now, I know! All of it was transformed into this very wonderful book. I'm especially interested in hearing opinions from folks who have the book about the last chapter "Sustainable Community: applying the lessons." What's your take on communities comprising several neighborhoods(Graham suggests this occurs at the "district" level) taking on the responsibility for managing schools, libraries, shops, and other facilities? Can cohousing, with its emphasis on collaboration and its mainstream "look" become the leading edge for this kind of community control/responsibility? Perhaps this is already happening. Any examples out there? AZ PS: BTW -- if you want a copy of Sustainable Community check out Graham's website at: www.grahammeltzer.com Since it's a self published book I think you have to get it directly from him. Don't worry...the mail from Down Under arrived at my mail box in about 8 days.
