If you have just the right person, as we did with John Ryan in Pioneer Valley Cohousing community, you can do this and save a lot of money. If this person has the skill set, there are ways of protecting them and the group from the conflicts that will occur. Same goes for any inside professional - I think it is more dependant on skill set and personality, than anything else. Laura Fitch, AIA, LEED Kraus-Fitch Architects, Inc 110 Pulpit Hill Rd.

With all the work needed in creating a coho, it's easy for people to learn passivity. I'll be happy to communicate off-line about other issues related to in-house contracting.
