There are lots of cohousing developments in my area --Boston, Mass. I am a big believer in co-housing and think its ideal for all kinds of people -- seniors, kids, etc.

Hi Rhea-I think it's just a matter of time before it finally catches on in Minnesota.


You ask:

why is it so difficult for this co-housing idea to get kick started in Minnesota?

It takes certain housing-market conditions and density to make it viable, to get enough people interested in the same place at the same time and willing to pass up attractive alternatives during the time it takes to build critical mass and find a site and get approvals and build consensus/facilitation skills, etc.
