Hi. I think the issue of zoning changes for all of us in those "rural residential" zones (in which 3 or 5 or 10 acre zoning is the current model) is one where we can help each other. William Cerf created a separate zoning dicussion group but it may be better to keep this topic on this larger group. (William what do you think?) In Lyme, NH we (Pinnacle Project) own 120 acres. It is zoned rural residential with a 3 acre minimum, but there are other restrictions (road frontage, wetlands, slope, etc) that limit the MacMansions we would build (if we can't get the zoning permissions we want we have to protect ourselves from financial loss) to 7. No limits on how big each of the MacMansions could be or how many people live in them, so long as they have one kitchen. We are working with a zoning consultant right now to draft some language our Zoning and Planning Board can bring to town meeting to allow us to build one Great House (18 private condo suites - 18000 sq ft with an additional 7000 feet of shared living space). If anyone has any model language or can point us to any resources we would really appreciate it (and I am sure other cohousing projects would too). thanks. liz Liz Ryan Cole www.PinnacleProject.info lcole [at] vermontlaw.edu home 802.785.4124
