"I'm looking forward to Nevada County coming around." May 02, 2019 Recently Chuck Durrett wrote the following on the Sierra Roots Facebook Page: I’m looking forward to Nevada County coming around. When I lived in Denmark and asked folks why I never saw homeless people there they always replied, ‘Because that could be my brother.’ In Nevada County, when I have asked why are there so many homeless, I have heard way too many times, ‘Chuck it’s Darwinian.’ Eugene, Oregon another former logger town, figured out that somewhere in between Darwin and my brother is compassion and built Opportunity Village. We can too. Architect Chuck Durrett is an entrepreneur, a community builder, and accomplished innovator. In the early 2000s, he and Katie McCamant built the first local co-housing development in Nevada County.
