Hi Sally, Check out the letters on our website at http://www.orangevalecohousing.org/whycohousing/benefitstoneighbors.html We did not proceed with the Orangevale project because of economic issues, and we are now pursuing a different site (www.FolsomEcoHousing.org), but the letters should be helpful to you. Click on the links for the letters of support, and there are four letters from Mayors. Neighborhood resistance seems to be a universal problem. Good luck!

Cohousing is a very new and strange concept to the municipality in SE Pennsylvania where we hope to gain zoning approval for a Planned Residential Development. We think that if we could receive a few letters from the Municipal bodies that approved a Coho Community previously and found it to be a real asset to the municipality once built, it might reassure reluctant politicians here that we are not going to be a hippy commune that will bring down property values! If you could provide me with the name and e-mail address of the Manager, President, etc. of the Municipality that has welcomed you warmly that might not mind reassuring our municipality that they have nothing to fear and everything to gain by creating appropriate zoning modifications to allow us to exist, we would be so grateful! And if you know of any nice persons interested in Cohousing very near to Philadelphia, send them our way too! We are ready to build our membership now and soon our community!
