Our Committee

Maxine Murray (Chair)

Maxine is a baby boomer grandmother who wants to age in place in a multi-generational community. She is excited about living in a community where not only can she walk to everything but while doing so can also meet and chat with friends, neighbours, kids and their parents.


Jan Saggers (Vice Chair)

Being a member of the ‘sandwich generation’, Jan has a strong personal interest in intergenerational living. She believes there are huge advantages in fostering communities that actively promote close relationships between members of different generations.


Susan Barrera (Treasurer)

Susan is semi retired but busier than ever. She enjoys getting around Perth on public transport and bicycle (mainly) and takes an active part in a number of communities of interest. Travelling overseas provides opportunities to observe other ways to build and participate in communities of people of all ages. The opportunities to build new ways of living together are very exciting.


Jan Stuart (Secretary)

Jan Stuart is a mother, grand-mother, passionate reader and indifferent golfer. She has an interest in creating urban spaces in Perth that appeal to everyone – kids, their parents, their pets and their grand-parents.


Mike Wiggin (Web Administrator)

Mike is an ex-mining engineer who has filled his days by turning large pieces of wood into smaller – but supposedly better – smaller pieces of wood. He is also keen to develop a way to live well as he ages and to stay part of a growing, vibrant community that includes people of all ages.


Deb Karajas

Deb believes that human beings need community in order to thrive, and that our built environments must be shaped around that fact. She is a Gen Y-er who lives in Perth’s inner city with her husband and two young children, and particularly wants to see more creative, socially sustainable solutions to the needs of young families: giving them the option of affordable housing in diverse, walkable, high-amenity neighbourhoods.


Mariana Atkins

Mariana Atkins is an international nomad who now calls Australia home and is keen to do her bit to help shape Perth into a vibrant, liveable and sustainable city.  She is a Gen X-er who has gone back to university to pursue a PhD in a topic dear to her heart:  how can communities of integration be planned which cater for all ages and stages of life?


Marie Finlay

Marie Finlay is..



Jan Rodgers

Jan is a semi-retired baby boomer who loves the company of people of all ages.  She wants to see flexible options for owners and renters in a multi-generational community- where the car is rarely used because of good public transport and close by facilities.
