5 years.

This past weekend Triple Point Cohousing celebrated our 5 year anniversary!  It has been a whirlwind of a time and we welcome all of the new neighbors who are bringing life to the neighborhood.  Welcome to Actual Cafe, Tribu Cafe, Compound Art Gallery, Aquarius Cafe (affectionately known to us as the ‘Coming Soon’ Cafe), Farley’s, Professor Squirrel, Chile Jalapeno’s, our new neighbors in the condos on San Pablo and anyone else we may have missed.

Triple Pointers have been working on enjoying life and laying low.  Over the past couple of years we have thoroughly enjoyed group and personal development, led by Tree Bressen, and Oren Sofer.  Their help in sharing facilitation and communication skills with us has been invaluable.

MAKE A NOTE! April 10th-April 30th, 2007

The MAKE A NOTE! campaign will begin the day after the Peabody Lane Neighborhood Watch block party which has been postponed due to rain for April 9th at 6pm. MAKE A NOTE! will focus on April 10th-April 30th.

MAKE A NOTE! is a 2 week period where we all keep our eyes, ears, (and hearts) open to call in any and all issues that our neighborhood faces- call in to any of the many Oakland City numbers listed on various websites over at oakland.net – and listed below – and use a print out of the MAKE A NOTE log.pdf to NOTE IT or email s.c.windels@gmail.com to add it to a collective log. You may also use the NLC- OFFICIAL Neighborhood Log.doc as provided by the City of Oakland if you’d prefer- please be sure to send a copy to me at s.c.windels@gmail.com so that we can ensure that our community has a copy of all of the information that we collect for future reference.

IN SUM- April 10th-April 30th:

  1. Witness something that is not good for our neighborhood
  2. Call it in to any of the hotlines with as much detail as possible (it helps to write it down as it is happening in as much detail as possible)
  3. MAKE A NOTE! on using a print out of the MAKE A NOTE log.pdf
  4. Turn your log in to:

City Attorney’s Office:
Matthew Hawkins, One Frank Ogawa Plaza, 6th Floor, Oakland, CA 94612 (510) 238-3988
AND
Peabody Lane Neighborhood Watch: Sarah Windels, 1115 65th Street, Oakland, CA 94608 (415) 425-5756

I will also be bringing a package of logs to the City Attorney’s Office on May 1st and can bring yours there as well if you would like. 

Make sure to note:

  1. your name
  2. date/time of complaint
  3. detailed complaint- as detailed as you can get
  4. number called
  5. reference or incident number given by person on the line or that you left a detailed message on the voice mail
  6. any action taken to fix the problem

If you cannot navigate the telephone lines, report the issue to Jane Brunner’s office line 238-7001- and note that on the log.

WHAT TO CALL IN?

Everything that you feel detracts from the potential that our neighborhood has to offer:

  • the building that has been sitting for so long unoccupied and collecting trash and weeds
  • suspected prostitution
  • suspected drug activity
  • gun shots
  • grafitti
  • need for speed bumps or traffic lights
  • development or construction concerns
  • drainage problems
  • noise

… any issue that could use some work or where you have questions or concerns.

IMPORTANT! MAKE A NOTE!

The idea is to collectively document the issues that we face. It has been requested by various community support teams that in order to positively respond to our needs, they need to be well-documented for a significant period of time- 2 weeks is apparently a good time period for such a thing.

ALL TOGETHER NOW!

The best way to document our issues as a community is to focus our energy collectively on a period of time – removing the barriers that we put up to deal with the daily crime routine, and come together to document every issue as best as we can. Our community crime log needs to happen simultaneously with the City of Oakland’s official crime log to get significant response- and thus we need to track each issue along with each call that we make to any of the various agencies that accept these calls.

~ TOGETHER we can make our voices heard. ~

East Bay Cohousing Opportunity

You are invited to an open house...

When:
Sunday, November 5, 2006, 2:00 PM

Where:
Dimond Cohousing Potential Site
3000 Nicol Ave. Apt. 1 and 3
Oakland , CA 94602

Description:
you are invited to come and celebrate community at this open house:
To turn this apartment building into a cohousing community in the
next 6 months!

Yes, the building is still a diamond in the rough: still needs to be
made beautiful - with your ideas! Please come and look at the inside
of the townhouses, and the possible
common space.

We'll have delicious refreshments and scintillating conversations
about cohousing!

THE FANTASY:
So, i have this fantasy....

ask the people who know me: my fantasies tend to be good ones. and
they tend to come true. and they tend to include plenty of people. and
those people tend to be very happy!

CLOSE, BUT NOT TOO CLOSE
this is a fantasy about living together with the people we enjoy - but
not too close together: close enough to have fun together easily
without driving or planning way ahead. but still have your own house
that is all yours and is private. you can keep your very own kitchen
as clean or not clean as you like. you will not be cleaning anyone
else's bathroom, or fighting over who does. this is not intentional
community, it is not a commune: it is an intentional neighborhood.

PRIVACY AND SOCIAL INTERACTION
i would love to have my own completely normal house to live in, to
work in, to be solitary in. and then, whenever i feel sociable, walk
outside into the common courtyard and hang out in the hot tub, at the
picnic table, by the barbeque. catch up on how a friend's
day is going, on news about cool things going on in the larger world,
join the cuddle puppy pile in the common house living room, trade a
massage, .
would you love to have a house like that too?

THIS IS THE PLAN:
* a cohousing community!
* a special alternative co-housing community for all of us who love
community, dance, art, compassionate communication, burning man, HAI
[Human Awareness Institute] as well as financial stability and
security and wise investment.

sounds too good to be true, doesn't it:
and yet: we can really do it right here and right now!
