A new cohousing group is forming in Santa Rosa, Ca at 807 Acacia Lane. The initial organizing meeting is being held on Wednesday, November 16 in Analy temporary buildings on the Santa Rosa Junior College, room 665. These buildings are adjacent to the student union building on Elliot street. The Cohousing Company of Berkeley, Ca has been contracted to facilitate the process. Kathryn McCamant and Charles Durrett of The Cohousing Company wrote the popular book Cohousing, A Contemporary Approach to Housing Ourselves. They will be hosting the organizing meeting and a follow-up workshop. Prior to the Wednesday night meeting at 6:00 PM Wednesday, a slide show will be presented on the cohousing concept. Following the slide show at 7:15 will be the organizing meeting. Interested parties please plan to attend. The slide show and meeting are free. At this meeting you can also sign up for the Group Formation Workshop which will be held Saturday and Sunday November 19 and 20 at the same location at the JC. Following is a description of the planned Acacia Lane cohousing: Santa Rosa location is 3.3 acres northeast of downtown. Situated on a quiet lane, the site has a rural feel, yet allows for easy access to Highway 101 and the lively small-city ambiance of Santa Rosa. The site is located within the highly praised Rincon Valley School District. A short walk down a dirt road leads to a park, playground and elementary school, with junior and senior high schools also in the neighborhood. Nearby, Annadel State Park offers hiking, boating, and other recreational opportunities. Planned are up to 26 one- to four-bedroom units, plus common house. Homes will be privately owned, market-rate units priced comparably to new housing in the area. Project organizers must determine whether there is sufficient interest by the middle of December. After extensive site search in Sonoma and Marin Counties, they are convinced that this Santa Rosa site offers the best current opportunity for cohousing in the area. It is essential that you get involved now in order for the project to succeed. Early involvement also allows maximum say in the planning and design of the community and individual homes, to best meet your needs.
