Reiterating this, perhaps, a bit more clearly. My goal with the sustainable housing website is to pull all the information on low income housing together. It gets spread out over the years and mixed with “affordable" so it is hard to find. It’s lost in the market. That is understandable — affordable and market-rate are more doable. I live in now expensive market rate cohousing but I remember when owning a home was far out of my reach. And still out of reach of members of my family. And I see the effect of that on their lives. Having all the information collected in on one website and focusing the discussion on one list may help low income cohousing move forward faster. It will also allow moderating the discussion so it doesn’t drift upward in cost. Building low cost housing will require the same concept shift that cohousing had when it first started and no banks or developers wanted to hear about it. And now after 30+ with over 100 examples of success, it is still regarded as risky. Low cost cohousing still seems impossible. The only way to make it work is to focus efforts. It take time to develop the website into a truly useful tool, but it will get there. Sharon ---- Sharon Villines, Washington DC "Design is the first sign of human intention." William McDonough
