Ann and all: Here is the portion of the article in the 4/23/18 on-line edition of the Wall Street Journal that mentions cohousing. The print edition, entitled "An Eco-Friendly Retirement" was shorter and did not mention cohousing. (BTW, it was an article about cohousing in a 1999 WSJ edition that first drew me to cohousing!) QUOTE Meanwhile, it isn´t just 55-plus communities that are focusing on green living. There is also a growing movement in senior housing known as cohousing, in which homeowners have their own units but share a common living space and other resources. Currently, there are about a dozen senior cohousing communities in the U.S., according to the Cohousing Association of the U.S. Charles Durrett, a Nevada City, Calif., architect who specializes in cohousing units, says "living lighter on the planet" is a big goal for every senior cohousing community he encounters. At Village Hearth Cohousing <http://quotes.wsj.com/Villag> , under construction in Durham, N.C., homes will be clustered on 15 acres, preserving 10 acres of green space. Pat McAulay, a member of that community, says that although boomers have always valued environmental sustainability, "a lot of us ended up walking the normal corporate path. "Cohousing," Ms. McAulay says, "gives us the chance to go back to those things that were really important to us when we were younger. It gives us a chance to redeem ourselves."
