Important: Encourage people to join the list

I have twice in two weeks been contacted by a member of a group that has never 
heard of Cohousing-L. I can’t imagine how they got to where they are without 
it. One is on the brink of moving in and the other on the brink of applying for 
a construction loan.

Both were asking questions that if asked on the list would have brought them a 
range of responses covering all the questions and answers they would have 
needed to avoid development problems.

They never heard of Cohousing-L. What is happening to publicity? I found 
cohousing-l in the New York Times in 1993 or 1994. Is it no longer mentioned?

I’m also seeing more and more communities listed here and there that we have 
never heard from on the list.

I think it should be the number one out of the gate recommendation to anyone 
even curious about cohousing. It’s boots on the ground advice from experienced 

Please talk it up and mention it in any of your press interviews. Insist that 
it be listed. People are wandering around no totally uninformed but without a 
group of experienced peers.
