Hello Raines,

Here's a reply to your message.

Baltimore Cohousing Group

Baltimore Cohousing is a parallel project to the Baltimore Democratic
School which will develop a cohousing community both for families who wish
to live nearer to the school and for folks interested in living near a
great educational project. This website is newly under construction.

We are a small group of parents who have started and currently run a coop
preschool in Baltimore.

We meet three times a week for school and maintain ongoing development of
the cohousing project. Our cohousing efforts grow out of our plans to
build a Sudbury model school.

We are a group of approximately 10 home-owning parents (although we have
more transitory members.) With no extra capital for buying/building a lone
school building, we plan to build a small cohousing 'neighborhood' that
collectively includes a school building. Our goals are to build more
efficient green homes, create a safe neighborhood for our toddlers and to
build a new school building collectively that meets all codes.

The owners of each housing unit will be staffing the school; the school
will have a capacity far beyond the community members' children. We plan
on taking measures (landscaping, placement...etc...) to ensure that the
school is formally separated from the housing.

Danny -

I see you identified yourself here on Cohousing-L as being part of
Baltimore Cohousing. I knew some people involved in a group there
long ago (late 90's), but there's no such group currently registered
with our directory or (as far as I can see) with the regional group,
Mid-Atlantic Cohousing. Would you care to share more about the group
and what you're up to, how many people are involved, are there
regular meetings, any particular development models or neighborhoods
you're considering or professional partners you're working with? If
you're serious about it, there's a long-dormant entry in the
directory that could be reactivated and linked to your efforts.
