Compass for 6/19/21

For years now, Port Townsend and Jefferson County have recognized a housing crisis that has threatened not only its most vulnerable population, but even those who have secure well-paid jobs. This week on the Compass, we talk with cohousing pioneer Charles Durrett, an architect who for more than three decades has made community the central focus of his practice, including not only in the design of local retirement community Quimper Village, but now in creating village-style housing for the homeless.
