Dear David, BINGO!!! You wrote " I read a lot of messages here and in the journal from groups in formation that say they're looking for a "semi-rural" virgin site of 100 acres or so where they want "to live lightly on the land" by clustering their couple dozen homes and doing all sorts of environmentally correct things as far as construction methods go." Building new homes on the fringe of a town or beyond is IMHO the antithisis of living lightly on the land. Here at Nyland we converted a 30 acre wheat field into a clustered subdivision. I love it here and yet, it is not a model I want to promote. I am part of the Nomad CoHousing group in Boulder that is moving towards creating an 11 unit infill community on one acre. (Sorry David it is as dense as the City will allow.) I feel that this is the direction I want to be headed. And the dance goes on..... Zev
