Kennebec Valley Cohousing sounds terrific. You certainly have accomplished a lot, and its particularly exciting that you were able to get funding to include many affordable units. I have two questions: 1. How did you define "affordable" to meet state/local requirements and get the grant? Can people join in your group at the beginning move into the affordable units if they meet certain guidelines? When our group investigated this, it looked as though we would have no choice about who would live in the affordable homes -- they would be assigned from the town's waiting list, and might be people who had absolutely no interest in the values or goals of cohousing. 2. You said the developed area of your community will be 24 homes on 20 acres. Our group's site plan (for a parcel we lost at auction, sadly) called for 27 units on 3-4 acres, including roads, parking, common house, and the common space enclosed by the buildings. Are your houses actually going to be spread out at something like one per acre, or does the 20 acres include your entire community, gardens, ball fields, pasture, etc.? P.S. Loved your ham and eggs analogy. Lynne Farnum Rose Tree Cohousing Groton, Massachusetts
