Thanks to two kind members of the List-Serve, I did receive one draft of proposed zoning ordinance wording that would allow cohousing/ecovillages to be built in a Township having no appropriate zoning wording otherwise AND just what I asked for, copies of letters in support of having a Cohousing Community come to a Township very unfamiliar with the concept. COULD I PLEASE HAVE MORE???!!! I think they will be invaluable in our efforts to get local approval, and we would be SO grateful!. As I said, Cohousing is a very new and strange concept to the municipality in SE Pennsylvania where we hope to gain zoning approval for a Planned Residential Development. We think that if we could receive a few letters from the Municipal bodies that approved a Coho Community previously and found it to be a real asset to the municipality once built, it might reassure reluctant politicians here that we are not going to be a hippy commune that will bring down property values! If you could provide me with the name and e-mail address of the Manager, President, etc. of the Municipality that has welcomed you warmly that might not mind reassuring our municipality that they have nothing to fear and everything to gain by creating appropriate zoning modifications to allow us to exist, along with a copy of their actual zoning modification, we would be so grateful! And if you know of any nice persons interested in Cohousing very near to Philadelphia, send them our way too! We are ready to build our membership now and soon our community!
