Hello, Cohousing List-Mates, This is a unique request for information and networking about a housing situation. We are probably not seeking traditional cohousing, but are interested in principles of community and proximity, applied in a suburban setting. We are (husband and wife team) Ian and Kimberly Wilder. We are poets, environmentalists, and peace activists who enjoy the music community and social justice community. One of us is a vegetarian, and one of us has vegetarian sympathies. Part of our intention is to live among people who will not use poisons on their lawns, and who can lobby the local government to skip spraying for their neighborhood. We are looking for housing in Long Island, New York, where we are from. We are thinking of living in the areas of South Huntington, Huntington Station, Riverhead, or Flanders due to land cost and non-proximity to environmental disasters. Though, we are open to other areas. We considered cohousing, and that could still be an option. Though, we were brought up very suburban, have been living close quarters in apartments for many years, and have a desire for some land. So, we are hoping for something like a suburban vision of cohousing, maybe 2 or 3 families purchasing homes on the same block. We would love information about lists or list-serves that match this vision. Or, if there are any folks on this list for whom this vision sounds appealing, please contact us. We are open to different ideas about how to create community in the overlay of existing housing patterns on Long Island. This is an especially good time for a project like this, since housing prices are falling. A house that was $350,000. a few years ago, is now likely to be $250,000. Any help or direction would be greatly appreciated. Please feel free to contact us, or give our contact information to interested parties.
