I went to the first "Getting Serious Meeting" for the Marin cohousing group, and thought you might be interested. I can't get over the superior organization skills of this group. And they are extremely proactive. First of all, over 80 people showed up. Katie McCamant spoke...what a neat woman! The group was incredibly precise, with information and with their intended time allotment. What surprised me was the estimated costs of living in the community. I know Marin is expensive, but a medium-sized (I think about 13-1500 sq. feet) 3 bedroom came in around $400K (I don't have the exact figures with me). To be a full member at this point is a $3,000 commitment. I think they got at least 7 people in that initial crowd to contribute the full amount. Of course, living on 94 acres, just three miles from the Golden Gate Bridge with a view of Mount Tam from one window and a view of Richardson Bay from the other isn't exactly shabby! I will only be going to one more meeting. Since I am writing about cohousing and am not really partaking in the proces financially, I can't keep going to meetings. But I have been very impressed so far. Lisa Schulman
