I would expect these to distribute announcments and regional topic updates primarily and thus be low volume lists that would hopefully have inclusive subscriber lists. That is, because of their low volume and regionally specific content people would subscribe to these who don't choose to participate in Cohousing-L's relatively high volume. For each region's list a volunteer would be needed to manage and promote it. For someone active on the net this should not be too big a task (as much effort as one cares to / can put into it...). With the availability of "free" (advertising supported) list servers that are now available, starting such a list is pretty a straight forwards task. There would be a number of things that could be done centrally to support regional lists - contact info on www.cohousing.org, occasional announcements on Cohousing-L, folks acting regionally may want to occasionally port a message from cohousing-L to their lists. Of course some of us could offer advice and aid to folks starting such lists. In fact a few lists that resemble this already exist in some regions. I've been meaning to promote cohousing-MN for some time (see below) ...
