When the Developer Leads the Way

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

As groups form to create a cohousing community, a big question to answer is - do you need a developer? And a separate but related question is - can you build a successful cohousing community if the project is initiated and developed by a developer, not the community? In this session, we will examine 3 different cohousing project scenarios in which developers were involved to answer these questions.
