New plans for the cohousing movement

by Rick Mockler, Coho/US President-Elect
Muir Commons, Davis, Calif.

September is a time of change for many of us. Our younger cohousers are 
beginning a new school year with all that entails - new studies, new 
friends and perhaps a bit more maturity. At work, fall often means new 
projects and plans. Similarly, at Coho/US, we are also maturing, planning 
and making new friends.

The most fundamental change at Coho/US this year is in our relationship 
with cohousers. We're looking for cohousers to become our partners, not 
our customers. If our mission is to build awareness of cohousing and to 
encourage the development of new communities, our natural allies are the 
people living there already, who already get it.
