Cohousing in Eugene!
November 30 • 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm• Free
Come join Oakleigh Meadow Cohousing to celebrate community in Eugene!
Cohousing is an intentional community of private homes clustered and strategically positioned around shared common space to facilitate maximum possibility of social interaction between neighbors. Each attached or single family home has traditional amenities, including a private kitchen. Shared spaces typically feature a common house, which may include a large kitchen and dining area, laundry, and recreational spaces. Cohousing communities are intentional, collaborative neighborhoods created with a little ingenuity. They bring together the value of private homes with the benefits of more sustainable living. That means residents actively participate in the design and operation of their neighborhoods, and share common facilities and good connections with neighbors. All in all, they stand as innovative and sustainable answers to today’s environmental and social problems.
Oakleigh Meadow Cohousing is actively seeking more members, having cleared yet another major legal hurdle when the Court of Appeals recently affirmed their development, giving them an unconditional two-thumbs-up to proceed unhindered. In addition, OMC has once again secured approval of their project from the City of Eugene. As such, they have all of the necessary land use approvals at this time and are aiming to break ground spring/summer 2019, right around the corner!
Join us to learn more, or better yet come on board in creating Eugene’s first cohousing community, an intergenerational village on a beautiful piece of land that is close to downtown with clustered townhouses and flats to maximize efficiency, interaction, and green space. Are you looking for an open, safe, and eco-friendly neighborhood with private homes balanced with generous common spaces, a place for kids of all ages to play together, and an opportunity to age in place surrounded by people who care about you? Welcome home! We look forward to seeing you!
