I don't think anyone from the Rochester, NY group that I visited recently is on coho-l right now, but I thought they had an interesting way of doing it. Their common house is half of a duplex that is owned by one of their members. The group rents the common house from the owners. (Two adjoining houses are owned (or rented?) by members, a couple of other member households live very close by, and a couple of others live a mile or two away). I think I've got this right (if not, someone please correct me: The household type that pays the most -- if I remember correclty, it's about $86/month--is a family of two adults. If they have a child or children, they pay LESS. A single adult pays even less. Obviously this info may not be useful to a more conventional "classic" cohousing community, but I thought it interesting that they had chosen to do it this way. A sort of "each according to his/her......." system. Joani Blank Doyle St. CoHousing now, Old Oakland CoHousing in about a year, and at the moment a ten-day visitor to Pioneer Valley on the right coast. NOTE: please ignore the fact that this email comes from an AOL address. My e-dress is still jeblank [at] ic.org
