Placitas Sage Cohousing, located just north of Albuquerque, in Placitas New
Mexico, is so excited to welcome our "FarAway" members for an In-Gathering
over the Thanksgiving holidays.  Since we are still in the process of
getting our land re-zoned and have not yet been able to start building our
homes, we are focused on building our community.  To that end, most of our
members who live outside of New Mexico (who we lovingly call our
"FarAways"), will be arriving between Nov 18 and 20 to stay with local
members until December 1.  

During that time we have a calendar of activities focused on fun as well as
business - we will meet with our lawyers in Santa Fe and our builder closer
to home.  We will have some business meetings and in-depth personal sharing
meetings, as well as attending an art show featuring 2 of our members,
potlucks, concerts, and just hanging out visiting and continuing to build
our community.

On Wednesday, Nov 30 we will all attend a Planning and Zoning Meeting held
by Sandoval County, where we hope to gain an approval recommendation of our
re-zoning application.  This important step will allow us to meet with the
County Commissioners early next year in the hopes of getting official
approval of our plan so we can begin to build.

It isn't always easy to plan and develop community when some members don't
live near-by, but we have used technology and personal connections to keep
our FarAway members involved.  If your community is facing the same issues,
please contact us, we'd be happy to share what we've been doing to make our
community happen - even before the buildings are built!

And.if you are looking for community, we still have 9 households
available.visit our website to learn more: or contact
us to arrange for a visit.

Happy Thanksgiving to all, and please keep us in your thoughts as we face
this very important milestone in our group's development.
