On Weds, 23-FEB-1994 10:23:05.02 From: John Ladwig <jladwig [at] soils.umn.edu> Subject: RE: Urban cohousing John said: It wasn't (for many of us) simply money, but in many cases it was a combination of time *and* money. The money required to get a cohousing project off the ground was looking more and more like (possibly more than) the money involved in getting a single or small group project off the ground, and *much* more time. Some of us have gone on to tilt at other windmills... One of which came about as a direct result of a Cohousing meeting/association. Details on request, although a lot of the local folks (the only ones affected) know what I'm talking about. ============================================================================== I , for one, would be very interested in hearing of your windmills. I'm really glad you TRG'ers are staying on the NET, and very sorry that nothing has worked out after all your work. I'd have to say, after 1 year with the Network at the beginning, and 3 + years in core groups, and who knows how long till we get our Phase 2 units occupied and get the real benefits of a good sized group, I know what you mean about *much* more time. It is, I'm sorry to say, harder than I thought it would be (and I didn't think it would be easy). But, when I think of the alternatives, I'm still committed. I do think that the extra work required for the larger projects will pay off in less turnover and greater longevity. I sure hope so. Good luck, anyway.
