Any chance we can be part of the test since we're trying to get our
community filled (or fuller) as we get closer to move-in.

I'd say we are in the same boat as everyone else.  Although we've been
feeling lucky that most of the existing community is hanging in there.

The Common House is being framed right now and it looks fabulous.

Thank you.

This has been a theme of a number of emails, calls, and general conversation
around Coho/US volunteers and staff.. There appear to be more "looky-loos"
than ever before.

The most vulnerable are those communities unable to sell built homes.
Somebody must carry the costs of these unsold homes - and the "somebodies"
most often include the other community members.

A core function of the association is to help communities that need new
members and buyers - at all stages of a community's life cycle. Today, our
main online method is through our Free Directory and paid Classified Ads.
We'll soon be releasing another vehicle to make some communities VERY
VISIBLE. This new feature will start out Free while we test it to see
whether its as good an idea as it seems before launch.

I'll let you know when it launches.
