Hi-- Our cohousing group (new this past July) is now up to 12-15 households thanks to some luck and a front page newspaper article. Basically we have just finished our vision statement, opened a bank account, started incorporation process, and gotten to know each other. We are about to embark on site search. Today I was contacted by an architecture professor at University of Connecticut. She said she had read the article and held onto the article for a while. She told me she wanted her grad class to do the landscape design of our community. She also informed me there was a lot of interest in her department and there might be some way that UCONN and our group could work together. While at first blush that sounds great there are a few problems. One, of course, is we don't have a site. The second is the developer that our group is interested in working with is building Pathways Cohousing in Northhampton and we are back burner at the moment. Pickings are slim for cohousing developers on this coast. Anyway, my question is...have other cohousing communities collaborated with colleges in design, etc. What are those pros and cons? Thanks, Shelly DeMeo Greater Hartford Cohousing
