We're in the same boat. All commercial facilities share expenses by square footage. Most cohousing I know of seems to use a modified sf and per person or per unit approach. Does anyone out there use a square footage only method? One additional challenge we face is that we have a wide spread of affordability, from Habitat units up to Boulder market rate homes...which makes the allocation of dues and reserves contributions trickier. -b (wild sage cohousing) bryan bowen architects, p.c. 1510 ZAMIA AVENUE #103 BOULDER, COLORADO 80304 (303) 443-3629 www.bryanbowenarchitects.com -----Original Message----- From: cohousing-l-bounces+bryan=bryanbowenarchitects.com [at] cohousing.org [mailto:cohousing-l-bounces+bryan=bryanbowenarchitects.com [at] cohousing.org] On Behalf Of Margaret Sent: Tuesday, March 30, 2010 10:40 AM To: cohousing-L [at] cohousing.org Subject: [C-L]_ allocation of reserve expenses We are a fairly new cohousing community. We did an initial reserve study and allocated our reserve expenditures about 50 percent by household and the rest primarily by square footage. We now have an updated reserve study and are planning its implementation. We are curious what other cohousing communities' experience has been with allocating reserve expenditures-what formulas have you used; how have they worked out; do you have any to suggest other than a combination of by household and square footage? Which expenditures do you allocate by each category? Is there any community that allocates solely by square footage or solely by household? Any insight you can give us about your experience would be greatly appreciated.
