There are many economic advantages to living together in community - among them sharing resources, having buying power, combining skills to create businesses, and using the skills of the entrepreneurs among us to get our group tasks done to name a few. Building on a theme Laird Schaub discussed at the national Cohousing Conference in Nashville this spring, we'll explore the ways the community can expand economically.
Following this, our developer Jonathan Gayl will tell us ways in which members of Altair can seek and obtain mortgages, rework their finances accordingly, and find ways to help those of us who cannot afford to purchase a home outright become active participants in the community. This is a major step for many of us, and Jonathan has broad knowledge to share.
We will follow our 3:30 pm Discussion Group with a potluck at 5:30 pm. Come to 2237 Kimberton Road, Kimberton - gateway to the site, but park at the Kimberton Arts Building at Kimberton and Prizer Roads. Bring a dish or drink to share, and bring your questions and comments about our project. RSVP to Joel at 610-220-6172 or email@example.com.
