COMPELLING: BENEFITS OF LIVING IN COMMUNITY & FRIENDSHIP

  Friendship is essential to human survival. “We are designed to live and work in groups. It starts in childhood with our family, then school widens our social network.

 Caring about others makes us take better care of ourselves

 Not Having Community a Social Networks is as damaging to survival as smoking 15 cigarettes a day

 Relationships sustain us and help our mental health and wellbeing

 When someone is connected to a group and feels responsibility for other people, that sense of purpose and meaning translates to taking better care of themselves and taking fewer risks

 Those with the strongest social networks fared best in terms of health outcomes and lifespan.

 Those of us who have a good social network are twice as likely to be alive at any given age than those who are lonely.

 Modern conveniences & technology can lead some people to believe face-to-face social networks are not necessary.

 Constant interaction is not only beneficial psychologically ,but directly to our physical health.”

Relationships sustain us and help our mental health and wellbeing. Isolation, on the other hand, is linked with mental illness, anxiety and ill health.”

Portland Oregons Best New Communities – Villebois a Bold Courageous Suburban Village

 Villebois – these three outstanding core values Connected. Sustainable. Diverse define a community that is far more than a place to live. It is a place that can actually change how you live.

  After becoming an Energy Trust Ally and  S.T.A.R. Earth Advantage member  my awareness has grown towards  the value of what is  just out my  front door.  Trips to far off mtn tops , deep gorge valleys and ancient European pilgrimages  will certainly be more carefully considered and probably will become much longer adventures.

The brilliant concepts envisioned at Villabois in Wilsonville 16 miles south of the inner core of Portland is still in the making , but provides many hopeful solutions toward  creating from scratch a potentially  rich diverse healthy community lifestyle.

 Creating 160 acres of parks and open space is a good start. As  is the shuttle to a soon to be active  WES MAX route to Beaverton and downtown .  Talk about creating location!  The  absolutely wonderful Preservation of existing trees , deep  setbacks and excellent positioning surrounding small green spaces  create a  feeling of small country manors out of zero lot line single family homes.

 The self proclaimed   Grand Piazza  central core is liberally stacked with  Mixed Use & Apartments, Row Houses, Condo’s with townhouses above sport truly eclectic  European,  Eco Industrial and a American Traditional Fusion mixes of architectural styling.   The core is literally surrounded by a vast network of branch  small enclaves of zero lot single family homes with back alleys on the perimeter of the 550 acre site.

 Costa Pacific brought over from  Orenco station their brilliant Row House designes  with   Bolder  Tuscan Exteriors. The three story townhouse plans really work  with great superb flow and functionality.  Warm , subtle lighting, with access to three outdoor living spaces, great textures, hues and geometrics with clever alcoves down to a potential elevator and -I touch plug -in speak system.  The two car garage is a convenient 1/2 flight of stairs up to a gourmet kitchen.

 My next blog will include a GREAT WALK through the site map of  Villa bois with pictures and reviewS of single family ZERO homes..
