 We talk about Rocky Hill a lot -- I know we have members who eye Rocky Hill 
fondly if/when an opening should occur.In the meantime we are plowing forward 
with our planning board, hoping to convince them. Your response and others I've 
gotten should helpBarbara

 In response to a request about Common House usage: perhaps ten years ago a 
graduate student did a study on this topic in ten or twelve cohousing 
communities.  Rocky Hill Cohousing was in this not overly impressive study and 
was one of the most used.  Several complained of not much usage.  Before COVID 
our Common House was used for quite a few different meetings and gathering 
regularly, in addition to usual usage, i.e., common meals, community meetings, 
mail pick-up.  This included child care in our family room, local refugee 
resettlement coordination meetings, musical groups, political forums, dances, 
meditation, etc
