Ready to find out more and get involved?
Become an Explorer and pay a $300 non-refundable Explorer Fee.
We will schedule an orientation meeting to discuss the path of the project, current status, and your questions.
You are encouraged to attend our business meetings, join a "circle" (i.e., a committee), focused on an aspect of advancing our project and attend social events in order to get to know our evolving community.
Reserve your Spot in Cedar Cohousing!
Become a member and pay a $500 Membership Fee. If you decide the project is not for you before land is purchased, you can request this fee be refunded.
Membership also requires becoming current on the “cash calls” that have been invested by all members in the project so far. (These funds will be reimbursed when construction is completed should you drop your membership.)
As a member, you are expected to become fully involved and attend meetings, participate in and help organize social events, and use your talents to make the project a success.
Advantages of Joining Sooner than Later
The date you become a member holds your seniority spot for choosing a specific unit in the neighborhood—an incentive to join now! The spot is held as long as you continue to fulfill the other requirements for full membership.
Be part of the dynamic process of community-building. It’s a unique opportunity to join forces with other passionate people to create something like this! You will learn a lot, your comfort zone will be pushed at times, and the accomplishments will feel incredible.
Have a voice in the design of our neighborhood and your future home.
