Hello there--I am writing as a Friend of Liberty Village Cohousing Community (soon to be a partner, I hope). They have asked me to share with all of you our exciting progress. We are working on developing our web site, but until then, here's the latest: Liberty Village is located in Frederick County, MD and has been developing their community for about 6 years now. On 8/14/96 we got the go ahead from the Frederick Planning Commission to begin construction of our 34 unit community on 9/1/96. We own 27 acres of farmland which is contiguous to a 105 acre community park, much of which is undeveloped land. We will be constructing duplex townhomes, some of which will be specifically designed for the disabled. We are approved to build 20 homes during school year 96-97, 10 more homes starting 9/1/97 and the remaining homes starting 9/98. We currently have 15 homes committed and are offering financial incentives to those who become Partners before the September 11 hearing which will officially finalize our plan. This is a very exciting time! We plan to start building utility lines this fall and winter and start homes in the spring. We can start building the common house anytime; we hope to have the first 30 homes all completed by the end of 1997. We are in the process of trying to sell the existing historic farmhouse which is on the property, and have also parceled off 3 lots to sell. The homes will be built on 8 acres of the property, leaving approx. 16 acres undeveloped. The Partners so far are a mix of couples with children, single parent families, singles and senior citizens. Anyone interested in hearing more can e-mail me at cburmast [at] umabnet.ab.umd.edu or call 410-377-4914, 202-898-5035 or 410-366-5109 to talk to other members of the community. I know we all share in each others' successes as each community comes closer to becoming a reality. Celebrate for us! Carrie Burmaster, Friend of Liberty Village
