Hi folks, I'm a member of the new Village Hill Cohousing in Northampton, MA, which is partially completed. Several households moved in a year ago, other homes under construction, and folks are scheduled to move in later this year. *If your cohousing, like ours, used a developer but was not "developer-driven," we'd like to know what kinds of preparation you implemented (or wish you had implemented), in making the transition from the developer to the community taking ownership of the common house and common property. * - What kinds of documentation do we need -- maps of where water and power lines are buried, detailed plans (and construction pix) of the common house, records of the legal status of conservation land, etc.? - How should we prepare for what happens when physical things go wrong -- the power goes out, common house appliances fail, water or sewer pipes leak, etc.? - What do we need to do to prepare for future decades -- preparing for maintenance and repairs of common house, etc., adapting to a warming climate, etc.? - What do you wish your community had thought of, at the time of this transition? If you have advice about how your community handled (or didn't handle) this transition, we'd greatly appreciate it! Thanks, nl --- Nancy Lowe Village Hill Cohousing, Northampton MA
