This is a timeline for a cohousing project starting in the Fall of 2016 with a move-in date of 2020:
Initial Information Sessions will be hosted in early Fall of 2016 (see below for registration details). Those then interested in exploring the possibility of living in cohousing can join Study Group I, a series of 10 weekly workshops in October – December, 2016 during which participants explore the issues of “aging in place”, define what successful aging means to them, and what it means to work cooperatively together towards living in cohousing.
The fee for Study Group I is $600 per household.
By mid-2018, the group will be ready to sign a Purchase Agreement through a turnkey arrangement with a Developer involving an estimated $6000 investment per household in order to get all the necessary approvals with the City. Once the approvals are finalized, 70% sales are required to begin construction (approximately 1 year). Units and membership will be pre-sold, as with any condo development, but to participating members only. If all goes well, members can expect to move into their units in 2020.
