Event description

Description

You're invited to meet our members and Margaret Critchlow, and find out about a new cohousing initiative on the Saanich Peninsula. Vancouver Island is a hub of cohousing activity with three completed communities and two new projects underway. We are following the model of successful cohousing communities with assistance from the experts at Cohousing Development Consulting.

What is cohousing?

A cohousing community is a neighbourhood designed and developed by its members to combine the independent autonomy of private homes with the social benefits of a congenial and energetic community.

What is our vision?

We are a diverse group of independent households, enthusiastically looking forward to developing our own multi-generational cohousing community in Brentwood Bay, Saanichton or Sidney, within a ten-minute walk of the amenities and green spaces we need to live a more sustainable lifestyle.

We envision a community primarily of compact, creatively-designed bright apartments with extensive common facilities to augment our private dwellings and support us to have more connection with our neighbours.

Using Cohousing Development Consulting, the same experts who successfully guided the development of Harbourside Cohousing in Sooke and six other cohousing communities in western Canada, we hope to be ready to move into our community of 25-30 new homes by 2020.

We are actively building our membership and welcome introverts and extroverts in all ages and stages of life who value privacy and connection within a simpler, healthier, and more energy-efficient environment.
