Creating a cohousing community can take anywhere from a few years to nearly a decade. The process usually starts with a few households that share a desire to live in a cooperative housing arrangement. As the group members research what's involved in creating a community, they often develop an ability to work together, trust one another and reach consensus -- a cornerstone of the cohousing philosophy, said Kathryn McCamant, an architect and developer of cohousing projects. [ Fred's NOTE: The one page article by Mary Beth Breckenridge concludes with this noteworthy statement: Most cohousing groups never make it as far as a land purchase, however. Thomas Ruddick of Dayton Cohousing, a group that has been unable to recruit enough members to create a community, attributed that to the lack of a tradition of that kind of living arrangement in the United States and the difficulty of coordinating large groups of people to make major investments. ] The full article will be available on the Web for a limited time: http://www.ohio.com/mld/ohio/living/10652699.htm (c) 2005 Beacon Journal and wire service sources.
