Event description

Description

Have you been wondering what is Cohousing?

The short answer: it's a pocket neighbourhood with a focus on community & ecological sustainability, with a bunch of great neighbours thrown in.

Co-Housing makes people's lives more connected, more economical, more convenient, more ecologically sustainable, more healthy, and more fun.


Key features of a Co-Housing Community include:

- Participatory Process: the future residents participate in the planning and design of the building, and the establishment of their governance policies and procedures.

- Intentional Neighbourhood Design: the physical design purposefully encourages sociability that welcomes all age groups, is disability friendly, and embraces cultural diversity.

- Extensive Common Facilities: common areas are designed for daily use and supplement private living areas.

- Complete Resident Management: the residents manage the decisions of common concern at regular community meetings.

- Optimum Community Size: 15 - 35 dwellings, accommodating a full variety of age groups and household configurations, particularly families with children.

- Purposeful Separation of Cars: car parking is located away from the private residences.

- Meals: regular community meals are the life blood of a highly social cohousing community.

- Co-Development Process: the Steering Committee establish a strong working relationship with the design team, financiers, and construction team.



This is our first Information Session for 2018. You are invited to come along to find out more about Co-Housing, how it might fit with your lifestyle, where The Verge Co-Housing Community project is up to, and how you can become involved.
