We will be a mixed Cooperative and Cohousing (Eco-Village) community. This means we will be building a central house for 12 to 15 residents as well as selling small lots for individual dwellings.
How did/will you finance?
Our land purchase was financed by current members of the group with a few personal loans. Individuals will be responsible for financing the construction of there own homes; however, we also have a rental house connected to the property for those who wish to become involved but are not ready to build or finance building.

We hope to begin construction in the Spring of 2011.
Where is your Community?
Are you Urban, Semi-Rural, or Rural?
We are an Urban community 1.25 miles from city hall; however, our land feels as though you are in the country.

We are a bicycle community and thus restrict car ownership to only commonly held cars. A car coop will be set up with a car and a truck for those interested in co-owning a vehicle.
