This is great news, Rich,

I can attest to the fact that Lawrence in a great small town, with a wonderful main street, and tree lined residential neighborhoods with lots of shade. Very picturesque.

And what wonderful prices. Are you willing to sell to out-of-state cohousers who might want to own a unit as a rental? Is there a good rental market, as I would guess for a college town, and have you discussed limits on rentals in your community?

Delaware Street Commons is pleased and proud to announce that on Thursday May 31st, we signed construction loan documents to finance the construction of our neighborhood. Our builder, Neighbors Construction Company, will begin construction straight away.

We have worked hard to get to this point and are looking forward to the challenges and opportunities this opens for our community. Delaware Street Commons will be the first Cohousing Neighborhood in Kansas. Lawrence Kansas is the home of the University of Kansas. Lawrence, a town of 80,000, was settled in the years leading up to the Civil War by "Free State" activists intent on ensuring that KS would enter the union as a free rather than slave state. The culture of Lawrence descends from these abolitionist, New England roots. Lawrence is located midway between Kansas City metro area and Topeka, and is within easy commuting distance of both. Delaware Street Commons is located in the heart of Old East Lawrence, 6 blocks from a vibrant downtown and within walking distance of the University. Visit our Web site: www.delaware-

It is also our understanding that Delaware Street Commons has the lowest home prices of any Cohousing Neighborhood in the U.S. Our home prices range from $140,000 to $225,000. These prices are effective until August 1 at which time we will evaluate our progress and make adjustments as needed.

We are grateful to the many other Cohousers around the U.S. who have helped us along the way.
