Greetings, Well, some of you may remember that back in July I asked people to send me a listing of the household "type" in your cohousing community. I intended to get the summary back on to the list by the beginning of August, but life got in the way. Since it has taken me so long to get it together, I would like to give groups who didn't respond before a chance to do so now before I did the summary and feed it back to you. Here are the groups I already have the data for: Pioneer Valley Grell Sharingwood Jewell Hill Mimosa Grove (Hey, Mimosa Grove, where are you located?) Cardiff Place Greyrock Monterey Muir Commons Westwood Acadia "N" Street Doyle Street Berkeley CoHousing on Sacramento Street (AKA Flying Palms) Actually, I don't have yours, but should be able to get it by phone if no one responds to this. Southside Park (I'm embarrassed to say that I have lost your data. Could whoever sent it before please resend. Thanks!) Some communities I'd really like to hear from, but haven't yet: Puget Ridge, Nyland, Valley Oaks, Marsh Commons. Highline Crossing, Cambridge, Commonweal, Eno Commons, Synergy, Commons on the Alameda. BUT don't be shy if you are not on this list. These are just some I am familiar with. Here's the original request (well, it is slightly edited): [You don't have to be moved in or even building or totally sold out to answer this, but please be an established group with some longevity or a site secured or both, and have at least six or seven households committed.] Don't worry about confidentiality. These data will be presented only in the aggregate. How many of each of the following household "types" currently live in your community? 1.Two parent families with one or more children 2. Single parents (women, men) 3. Single men under 60, Over 60 4. Single women under 60, Over 60: 5. Gay couples. Lesbian couples 6. "Out" gay, lesbian or bisexual single people 7. Heterosexual couples with no children or grown children living elsewhere 8. Two or more unrelated adults (not in partnerships) sharing a dwelling 9. Other. (Please explain.) Also, please tell me the total number of Adults over 60 Adults under 60 Teenagers Children Infants and toddlers These last three are arbitrary. You decide which kids belong in which category. (approximations are fine). In the first go-round several communities reported on pregnancies brewing. If you tell me you have a pregnant person in your group, I am going to count that pregnancy as an infant, because some time within the next nine months it will be. Remember, If you wish to participate, PLEASE send your response to: jeblank @hooked.net, NOT to cohousing-l. Thanks. Joani Blank
