Sorry to hear that Cornerstone group is in such distress. I was so impressed with your group when I visited in January. The fact that you have 17 full member households (a huge core group for a project the size you were planning to build), and you have had a lot of cohesiveness up until now suggests to me that you should what you can to preserve the group for now. I was going to suggest that you go for the new site, because living in cohousing is so wonderful that where you are quickly becomes a lot less important than who you are and that you are living together. Then I realized how little space you actually have. As you know, we are 12 units on .3 acre. And that is very dense, but less dense than you'd be at 40 units. I think the main problem of more dense cohousing is not that it is more urban (which it invariably is), but that not all units open on the ground level. This may seem like a minor problem to those of you who don't live in cohousing yet, but as one who does live in a dense urban community, I feel it does detract from our sense of togetherness--especially those of us who live upstairs.
