Thanks to those who have volunteered to send us a Powerpoint presentation for us to use to represent to the uninitiated the basics of cohousing. We could still use a few more. Since one of the founding principles of the National organization as I understand it is not to re-invent sliced bread, I suggest we upload the best of our presentations for free download from cohousing.org. In comparison, I have also been researching Traditional Neighborhood Design for a parallel effort I am working on in our town, to complement and be adjacent to our hoped-for cohousing community. Compared to cohousing I found a huge wealth of information with which to educate about TND. Cf. http://www.horsleywitten.com/smart-growth/pages/mod-tnd.html for example, which has two free TND powerpoint presentations that are downloadable. There are many others out there. There are also many model zoning ordinances and a wealth of other materials such as TND site plans. I think we can do better than we are if we pool our individual resources and make them available on cohousing.org and include more of what has been done in the individual, especially completed, communities. For example, I would love to see floorplans of many of the communities or their site plans. These are not always available on web sites of the communities. Also, brochures and flyers could be uploaded to our central site. Sometimes these are available if individual communities are asked, but we could better help the fledgling communities that are trying to get built by pooling much more of the excellent work that has already been done. If there is interest in this idea, I'll upload the Powerpoint presentations after I've collected them. Tom Hammer Concord Village --still searching for land in Chester County, PA
