Hi Tim, 
I think there is a lot of demand for cohousing. I'm in San Francisco area and 
the demand seems limitless here.
To get a pulse about interest, you might want to pose this question in the 
following places: 
   - Meetups like this one:   

   - Craigslist housing    

   - Unitarian Church lists   

   - Vegetarian restaurants and co-ops.   

I'd say post more than once in any of these places, so you're sure not to miss 
Actually, you might also want to create a Meetup group around this so that you 
can post some specifics there.
Yours in social advertising,

 Greetings to all,

I'm writing to learn if there is enough interest in establishing 2 or more
cohousing groups on a +/-16 acre piece of land in St. Paul, Texas.  The
land is currently zoned commercial, however the Town prefers residential
development and we are interested in a mixed-use development where a small
town commercial/retail area that is pedestrian-friendly is fronting on the
main road and where there are possibly 2 cohousing developments, one for
seniors and another multigenerational in nature, in the more quiet parts of
the property.  If there is enough demand, there could also be additional
cohousing neighborhoods.

So, please let us know if you and/or your group are interested in being
part of this new small town opportunity.  *Please reply to this Cohousing-L
mail and/or contact me directly*.

I am currently a student of Chuck Durrett of McCamant & Durrett
Architects/Cohousing Solutions, undergoing training to be a Cohousing
Facilitator.  I am also an architect with 40 years of experience and I
represent a manufacturer of structural insulated panels (SIPs) using cast
cement composite (C3) face sheets, which is often a more sustainable,
sensible, faster, and economical way to design and build.  The primary goal
is not to sell panels but to focus on creating a very desirable group of
cohousing communities on my friend's land.


Thanks and best wishes to all,
