Sanda Everette is the author of the message below but it was posted by the Fred the list manager: owner-cohousing-L [at] cohousing.org Her address in Costa Rica is icadsst [at] sie.expreso.co.cr -------------------- FORWARDED MESSAGE FOLLOWS -------------------- Greetings from Costa Rica where I am beginning the second week of a four week program at a language school outside of San Jose. Yesterday we visited a housing project, one of many in Costa Rica designed for the poor, 40% single women. The government helps purchase the land but it is a private enterprise. All families must contribute 30 hours/week of labor. They may not sell or rent their houses. The community OWNS the community. I will be returning to San Mateo the end of the month. Some of you may recall that we are attempting to develop an urban retrofit type mini-cohousing project on an inlet of San Francisco Bay 20 miles south of the city. Hopefully there will be a website for it soon when Stuart updates the cohousing pages--for all I know he already has.... There will be two opportunities coming up to join us next month. There will be a wonderful 2 BR apartment available the first week. It has a great deck, about 16x16, overlooking the water. We will also be looking for someone to share our 3 BR apartment toward the end of the month. You can write me in Costa Rica, include my name in the subject or my huband, Brian, in San Mateo sand [at] bigfoot.com We look forward to seeing many of you at the cohousing conference in Seattle. Hasta luego, Sanda
