I just this past weekend had a visit here at Swan's from the organizer of 
the San Diego cohousing council, an umbrella group just getting off the 
ground, seeking advice on how to avoid reinventing the wheel; she's 
looking into possibly organizing a chapter of The Cohousing Network, or 
at least working with TCN to use our national database of thousands of 
people interested in Cohousing.

Don't be too fast to say "[Coho] can't happen here" about "conversative" 
locales/regions such as Southern California; in such places, people who 
want to live in community may be more driven than elsewhere. And keep in 
mind that the SD area includes several major college towns. And don't 
forget: the market for coho in that area is not just local; it's a 
popular retirement destination as well!

She wasn't quite ready to post her contact info, be listed on TCN's 
master list directory of coho groups, etc. But she'll certainly post info 
here when meetings are getting going!
