As one who lived in Park Slope, Brooklyn in the 1990s and who has a son living near there now and a couple of years ago purchased a Brownstone with another family (sister-in-law), I would suspect that price may be what is stopping some people from joining. Many young couples, I would guess, like the idea of cooperative living and maybe hope that pooling resources will result in lower cost as well. However, when they face the price of a unit in your proposed development they need for their family, it may be more than they can afford. Do you have any subsidized or affordable units? Why not directly ask those who show up, get the literature, and then don't come anymore, why they do not pursue further? Good luck. David Entin, Rocky Hill Cohousing, Northampton. Also, I like the idea of seeing what helps existing communities to flourish, or not. The Board of COHO/US is working on developing a survey of existing communities and wants information on how communities are faring. Any specific ideas on good questions to ask that are relatively easy to answer in survey form?
