NICA sponsered the cohousing booth at the Seattle APA event. Our table placement was way out of the main area, which meant it was easy to miss. For those who are going to consider this, get on the table/display list early so you get a better placement.

Planners ought to be familiar with cohousing, but not nearly enough of them are. I'm sorry I won't be able to attend this year's APA conference in New York but I am glad that cohousers will again be dispensing information. If anyone ever has a chance to take planners, planning commissioners, or elected officials on a tour of a built cohousing project, please do so. It could make the next permit process that much easier for the rest of us. Thanks. Stephan -----Original Message----- From: Fred H.

Tho I think planners in general are more aware of cohousing than the public in general, I'm sure it is helpful. I encourage you to tell folks of the existence of the discussion of cohousing on the net - Cohousing-L (and that more info can be found at http://www.cohousing.org ). And congrats to Greater Hartford Cohousing on your progress. Maybe your status on the communities/groups list has progressed from "forming" on the List of Cohousing Communities / groups - Indexed by Country and State at http://www.cohousing.org/groups.html Send community / group updates to cohousing [at] umich.edu Fred On Tue, 4 Apr 2000, Tonka444 [at] aol.com Tonka444 [at] aol.com wrote: > The cohousing network has a booth that will be staffed at the American > Planning Association's national conference in NYC from April 15th-April 19th. > There will be over 6000 town planners attending. > > -- Fred H.
