> Hello all, > > Some weeks ago I wrote asking for comments and experiences about working > with and without experienced project managers in developing a community and > going through the stages of land search & purchase, design, construction and > community building. > > I received a number of comments to the tune of "this doesn't exist in one > person/organization." Thus I was able to learn just how unusual the > services offered to our community are. I also heard from a good number of > people urging us to work with the most experienced consultants we could > find. > > Elizabeth Magill's wonderfully-worded email gave me a delightful snippet for > the introduction of my report to my group, and really helped my group think > carefully about all the things we didn't know! "Professionals know the stuff > that we don't even know that we don't know." (Thanks for this!) > > Others helped me realize the importance of careful and thorough due > diligence. > > I conducted a brief research project gathering information about other > communities' experiences working with our consultant and with members of > another Vancouver community that did not work with our consultant. Your > comments helped me formulate my interview questions and gave me a great > background for asking about & understanding the whole process. > > I'm pleased to say that we learned such positive things about our consultant > that our community was able to move easily and unanimously to agreeing to a > services contact with Ronaye Matthew and her company CDC Canadian Cohousing > Development consulting . She will be providing assistance with community > building, land search & purchase, construction supervision and support and > move-in > services. We feel very lucky to have such deep and complete experience to > guide us as we move forward with our process. > http://www.cohousingconsulting.ca/about.html > > We now have 20 committed equity households and are on a roll! > > So, these services do exist, even if they are rare. And, it's well well worth > the time and effort to conduct your own careful research on the history of > any professional you are contemplating working with. > > Thanks again for your help, > > Allison Tom > Little Mountain Cohousing > www.littlemountaincohousing.ca > > >
