This page contains the additional questions we request from parent applicants who will be bringing their children to live with them on the property. In the case of a multi-parent household, we request that each parent answer these questions separately, without collaboration. Please type your answers IN A DIFFERENT COLOR THAN THE QUESTIONS so they stand out. When complete, email questions and answer (as a Word Document or email – no PDFs please) with the standard One Community Application (along with any additional requested items) to Sara at [email protected].
