Today I was on the Cohousing site and I noticed that the one cohousing group that’s been trying to form in Illinois has now officially disbanded, leaving Illinois as one of only 14 states without an officially noticed cohousing site. And – worse yet (for me, at least) we are one of only 3 ‘blue states’ to be cohousing-less (the other laggards are Nevada – which really is more ‘purple’ if you ask me, and Rhode Island – which we can give a pass to for being tiny).
So if you’re interested in the possibility of changing that dynamic, stick around!
As I noted in my last post on cohousing, my small group is considering starting a cohousing community in northern Illinois (for the record, we’re also talking about Madison, WI and Asheville, NC). We’ll be doing a website (and I’ll move posts about cohousing there once it’s up and running) and a Facebook page, but for now this is our initial ‘mouthpiece.’
So what I really want to know is simple:
- Do you have any interest in this topic at all?
- If so, what questions do you have or what topics germane to cohousing would you like to know more about?
- Do you have any interest at all in actually moving into a cohousing community in the next 3-5 years?
And if you have ZERO interest in cohousing, tell me about that too. Now – over to you! Click on comments and add to the conversation!
