The following message is from Rowena Conkling my address is salley [at] volpe1.dot.gov I am a member of a newly formed group, Cambridge Cohousing, which is struggling to evaluate the type of legal entity we need to interact with bankers, property owners, etc. I would appreciate any comments, insights, recommendations in this area. I've read the article from Cohousing Journal but I'm really looking for war stories. In particular: Has any group out there formed a corporation rather than a partnership/joint venture for the early stages of development? If so, why? What advantages/disadvantages did it have? Would you do it again? Did any JVs have problems with banks - demands for personal guarantees, etc? We would also like to hear from any group that has attempted to include an affordable component - successful or not. Thanks for your help. ---------- From: cohousing-l Subject: grants Date: Tuesday, August 22, 1995 12:54PM Are any of the communities out there incorporated in such a way that they can write grants for funding? We're considering chartering our coho community as an educational center for environmental/appropriate tech issues, having a formal mini-conference center and dormitory, and creating a village of electronic cottages, wired up for Internet, and running on a combination of alternative energy tech, and demonstrating sustainable ag tech. Someone must have thought of this before... I know that there are intentional communities in this area, but not coho arrangements, that do this kind of thing, but I don't know if they got grants for it... Thanks!
