Not a place I would want to live out my retirement. I hope to find a community that is living in peace with its surroundings. Very bad energy surrounding this whole situation. Good to know before buying in. ------------------------------ As an architect having practiced for the past 25-years, I have never had a new construction project - of any type or scale - that didn't have some degree of opposition, along with at least one proponent. This has included community centers, multifamily housing, single-family homes, a shed, museum, office building, garden, playground, cohousing, etc. You name it - whatever it is - and it will draw opposition. To ultimately achieve a community that - in your words - is "...living in peace with its surroundings..." the community will need to take on the associated, myriad of challenges that come with change. We certainly had opposition to our own home, Capitol Hill Urban Cohousing, but we're definitely seen as an asset to the neighborhood now. In addition to all the cohousing in North America, I understand that even the 24 cohousing communities that we spent time with (in the great, social democracy of Denmark) faced some degree of opposition as well.
