Sustainable living - Private units - Shared common space - Strong sense of community
We want to create a diverse, intentional community that fosters personal connections and meaningful relationships. Our community will include 35 to 40 private condos ranging in size from studio to 3 bedrooms with ample common space indoors and out that will provide space for shared meals, hobbies, entertainment and leisure time - community kitchen, dining room, workshop, laundry, guest rooms, gardens, and play areas. Our physical space will minimize our carbon footprint by being urban focused and walkable with proximity to public transit and community amenities, access to bike paths, allowing us to reduce car dependence. We will be self-governed through collaborative decision-making.
April 24th, 10 AM to 11:30 AM: Visualizing Our Vision: Cedar Cohousing Neighborhood Search - Cedar Cohousing Members and explorers want to live in an urban, walkable, and mixed-use neighborhood close to rapid transit and public green space. Now that we have selected an architect, the next step is to refine the focus of our “site search” around specific neighborhoods which meet our criteria so we can provide that information to a land broker and/or developer. In this session we will define and illustrate our criteria, review maps of targeted search areas with nearby amenities, showcase a variety of prospective neighborhoods, and portray examples of recent urban multi-family buildings with streetscape images. Attendees will have opportunities to give input and help build consensus through online polls and break-out discussion groups.
All Cedar Cohousing events provide an update on the progress of our cohousing development project and are conducted via Zoom until MN public health officials determine it is appropriate to meet in person.
