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.

I attended last year's APA conference in Seattle and thought the cohousing
booth did a good job of dispensing information.  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.

Hi Shelly,

Thanks to you (and others) for organizing this.  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 ).

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

Send community / group updates to cohousing [at]
