I sent by mistake a message with one line: > Park Acacia, Santa Rosa, CA (33 homes) That was a message I was not ready to send, sorry. Below is the completed message...

I got to wondering about "SRCC" - their coop structure sounds attractive. 30 years is well before the term "cohousing" came to the US and the web pages about SRCC I read seemed to indicate that they don't call themselves cohousing but they seem closely related. They have long participated and been discussed on cohousing-L tho I did not find anything that compared them to cohousing. They have an ic.org directory entry but it does not show up in the cohousing directory (probably because they did not check "cohousing"). Curiously the directory does not have a place to list common facilities like the common house. Does SRCC have a common house? Some communities list how often they have common meals. Some do not. A few cohousing communities in the US are coops , most housing coops are not cohousing - it's a seperate question. Harriet, would you care to say a bit about SRCC compares to cohousing? Fred PS In reading about SRCC I came across late 1990s references on cohousing-L to a cohousing development effort: Park Acacia, Santa Rosa, CA (33 homes) I'm guessing it never got completed but I did not find that stated anywhere. -- Fred H.
