Dear Howard et al:
   At Manzanita Village of Prescott (Arizona) we are using the Arizona
Limited Liability Company(LLC) format for our develoment company.  Our
reasons for changing from a non-profit corporate organization to an LLC was
to reduce expenses and for-the-governments paper work. Both objectives seen
to have been attained.

   As to what effect the LLC format has upon securing bank $$ for
development work, I cannot say, since we haven't used them at the
development work stage.  Bank involvement will start next summer/autumn
when the unit buyers' individual mortgage loans kick in.

   As I remember, the problems that banks had with us wasn't the LLC, but
the cohousing, consensus based member management, idea.

   Hope this helps.  Personally, I like the way our LLC is working for us.
I suggest, strongly, that you repeat our path to LLCing, which included
Arizona (Illinois statutes for you) LLC statutes, discussing the pros and
cons at length, and retaining the services of a cohousing and LLC
"experienced" lawyer.

Yours Aye,

Leon R. De King,
