"At 83 years old I am planning to reduce my dependency on my automobile," wrote R.C. Cross, a member-developer of Oakleigh Meadow Cohousing and longtime Eugene homeowner, in "Reducing Our Impact," the most recent "letter to the editor" in the local press to support our mixed-generation cohousing development.
His letter continued, "Much of my daily activity will be an easy walk from my [individually owned cohousing] home. Volunteer work on the kitchen garden, group dinners in the common house and, best of all, my grandchild can visit Grandpa with a short walk across the courtyard without crossing any streets. ... I will certainly not add more than a fraction of one car trip a day on Oakleigh Lane. Read R.C.'s entire letter in the Sept. 24, 2015, Eugene Weekly.
