Cardiff Place Cohousing

I visited Cardiff Place a number of years ago and thought it a bit tenuous 
then. I wonder if it lends weight to the believe that cohousing is more robust 
if there are at least 20 units? (I believe Cardiff Place was around 10 units?) 
The leaving and arriving of people has less impact in the larger neighborhoods.

Hi Ann:

I understand that Cardiff Place cohousing no longer calls itself a
cohousing community.  The story I heard was that the original membership
and vision became diluted with each new resident to the point where the
cohousing vision was lost.  The pressure of the escalating real estate
market in Victoria seemed to be a factor.

Our community really sat up and paid attention to our new resident
orientation process when we heard this.

Cheers, Stacia.
