This evening a group in Anchorage is hosting a gathering at the Anchorage museum to discuss their plans for creating a co-housing project in the Anchorage area. The concept isn’t new, tonight’s speaker Charles Durret has designed more than 50 cohousing communities throughout North America and he lives in one with his wife and 33 other families in Nevada City, California- near Lake Tahoe. Terri Pauls is a long time Anchorage resident and is working on the local cohousing project for Anchorage, she joined Durret in the studio with me. Charles Durret is quick to say co-housing is not a commune, but rather a place to better know your neighbors, while still maintaining privacy when you want.
