-- Hello, all, We, at Hundredfold Farm, just presented our concept sketch to the township planning commission, and we have been recommended to go before the board of supervisors. This was a giant first hurdle! We really wowed 'em with slide shows, overhead projectors and highly detailed scale model, presented by our project manager, Robert Heaps of Heartbeat Cities. Other presentations were given by our water/septic engineers, surveyor and the lawyer who will be drawing up our homeowners association documents. However, one commissioner sat with a frown on her face the entire time, saying she was worried that if the project fails, the township will get stuck maintaining our community infrastructure. I would like to know if there are any cases of cohousing communities that have "failed" after move-in. Are there any other statistics on success rates? And, is there any information on waiting lists for existing or developing communities, etc., that would bolster our case? I would greatly appreciate any information on this. P.S. The article w/photo about our presentation can be seen at Gettysburg Times online edition: http://www.gburgtimes.com/news/housing_203.shtml Marya Tipton Hundredfold Farm Orrtanna, PA A Place to Grow!
