Lots of other cohousing communities wish they would have had only those
locational problems.
 
If you know that this is the only viable site, then a bigger question in my
mind is -- will enough of your members support this location, embrace it,
and go forward?  If not, you may not have anything left to work with in that
community.

Hello--
 
I had a questions for those of you living in cohousing right now.  Do you
have regrets about the site you chose?  Do you feel your group had to make
sacrifices and let go of that perfect land ideal?  And, if you did made do
with the site you had, are you glad you did? Or were you unable to "sell the
site" to others. 
 
Our group's only viable piece of land at the moment is a 40 acre parcel of
lightly-wooded farmland, abutting a high school in the small Connecticut
town of East Granby.  The problem is that the site is about 1/2 a mile from
a gun club (some people are nervous about that although it seems well
regulated) and the site is close to Bradley International Airport, here in
Connecticut.  While planes do not fly over our land, you definitely hear
them around and occasionally see one low on the horizon.  The pizza joint in
town is called the Landing Zone Pizza House!
 
Thanks for any advice you could give us as we grapple with this decision.
