Back from Hiatus

Had to take a hiatus  – but we are now back!

Take a look at this new community – this is one innovative residential option that looks very appealing –

I’m looking forward to learning more about this community which is right in my backyard!

  1. Welcome back, this community exists already all over the world: L’Arche & CampHill communities, and the multitude of campus based homes in almost every major city (most were private). I worked at such a community in the Catskills (New Hope Community) and visited many others. As long as no public funds are used to create them, and the people who will be isolated from the world while living in them are ok with living there, I say, Godspeed. The 1999 Olmstead decision will, however, prohibit the use of public fund to support such an enterprise.

  2. Yes, Thank you, those are great communities and I have been looking at them for many years. You are correct that as long as no public funds are used people can live how they desire – I think though that part of Olmstead was to allow choice and also use public funds.

    I disagree with your statement “the people who will be isolated from the world while living in them are ok with living there” off target though – there is nothing isolating about these communities – in fact – quite the opposite – there is support and community interaction – both within the residential community and the community at large. From your statement it appears to me that you believe these communities are in isolation from the population as a whole. I could be wrong but that is how I read it.
