The Washington, D.C. Metropolitan area has seen the closing of one hospital and presently another hospital is scheduled to close. Both hospitals are in neighborhoods, where a great proportion of African Americans and or working class population live. The views that have been expressed, in efficient community planning and development; seem to over look the importance of integrating co-housing and new residents into communities. The factor of education and literacy of finance are a foundation to any community's life span. A co-housing development group and potential resident must understand the multiple factors of accountability in the planning and infrastructure of a community. I commend the green sustainable community approach; but with any community development concept that has been planned, an efficient implementation takes time. NGO (Non-Government Agencies) networks are very helpful in providing case studies and community related datum that are difficult to access from various branches of state, local, and national government. It is important understand the level of participation a resident must have; and the institutions of foundation of a community. NGO and Government agencies can aid the process of developing platforms of foundation for developing co-housing communities. Knowledge of how our actions are related to a community governance, and strategic viable development is important.
