We at Cohousing Advocates, Joelyn Malone and Phil Stevenson, are holding 
our first information sessions to introduce our new professional 
cohousing business this month. Our "quick-start" model is a new wrinkle 
in cohousing development. We will be presenting information about sites 
we've been researching that could be available for cohousing move-in 
within as short a time as 6 months to 1-2 years. This is a pretty unique 
opportunity we have discovered because of the down-turn in the housing 
market, and will only be available as long as other condo and 
multi-family sales are extremely slow, as they are now.

Here are the Introductory Meetings scheduled so far:

Saturday April 14th: 10:00 AM - Noon
Twin Cities Friend's Meeting House
1725 Grand Avenue
St. Paul, MN

Wednesday April 25th: 7:00 - 9:00PM
Lake Harriet Spiritual Community
4401 Upton Avenue South
Minneapolis, MN

We are really excited to have found this gold mine of potential 
cohousing sites. Some already have financing for affordable housing as 
part of the package they can offer. At our Introductory Meetings, you 
can meet other people interested in cohousing, share your ideas, see 
photos, and hear about Cohousing Advocates' services. If one of the 
sites in our (growing) portfolio doesn't appeal to you, we're also 
available to work with your own cohousing group and its particular vision.

See www.cohousingadvocates.com <http://www.cohousingadvocates.com> for 
more information. (We have a questionnaire for interested people to fill 
out at our web site, but we're having technical difficulties with the 
form so check back later if that's how you want to reach us.)

To all of you and especially those who were excited about the 
possibilities at Island Park I'd really love to be in contact with you 
again about this new opportunity. If you can't make it to one of these 
meetings, contact me at 952-926-8554 or the above email address -- I'd 
love to talk more with you and anybody you know who is seriously 
interested in making a move to cohousing, from the Twin Cities or 
surrounding region.
