I heard a segment this morning on NPR (about half way through the morning news 
program) which mostly talked about senior Co-housing, and I’m wondering if this 
is giving the public the impression that Co-housing is only about seniors.  I 
live at Muir Commons in Davis, CA, and that is certainly not the case.  Would 
it be worth it to contact NPR to see if they would do another segment about 
different kinds of Co-housing, while they’re doing a series on innovative 
housing?  Best, Laurie Friedman
