Cantine's Island CoHousing of Saugerties, New York is another group for readers of this list to know about. We have the remarkable luck to have paid very litt le for a spectacular piece of waterfront property. We will cluster twelve homes and a common house atop a ridge and devote the secluded lower portion to trees, gardens, recreation and waterfront access. We are designing the project in accordance with Alexander's A Pattern Language; our architect, Raym deRis o f Belmont, Massachusetts, is experienced in applying these patterns to communit y design. Construction will start in spring 1995; village planning board approv al is already in hand. We project the cost of a basic 1100 square foot house, p lus the household's share of land and development costs, as $75,000 up. We make all decisions by consensus. At present we are in the last phase of our outreach and seeking ethnic and intergenerational diversity. As of May 1994 we have nin e fully committed households and several others giving it serious consideration Contact Lee Haring (lehbc [at] cunyvm.cuny.edu), 718 857-1851.
