Thank you, Neil for posting this link to the Village Building Convergence. All — I took part in the Participatory Place Design workshop that Neil just emailed about. If you went on the bus tours at the CohoUS national conference last year in Portland you will remember many of these characteristics of “re-villaging” or placemaking — the art around the city, the in-fill developments for cohousing and other small developments, pushing the envelope of zoning and building regulations. It was excellently presented. The two hour session sponsored by Foundation for Intentional Community (FIC) flew by. The part that I was interested in was the “guerrilla” marketing Mark Lakeman’s cohorts did to get the ball rolling. They just created stuff. And as Mark said: Stared down the opposition. I think it helps a lot that Portland is a pretty liberal municipality. Still, it does take fortitude. Maybe we should all work on our stares … Best -- Ann Zabaldo Takoma Village Cohousing Washington, DC Member, Board of Directors Mid Atlantic Cohousing Principal, Cohousing Collaborative, LLC Falls Church, VA 202.546.4654 The most interesting information comes from children, for they tell all they know and then stop.
