Santa Rosa Creek Commons is an intergenerational limited-equity housing cooperative 60 miles north of San Francisco. Although centrally located near public transportation, we are in a secluded wooded area beside a creek on two acres of land. We share ownership of the entire property and pay monthly carrying charges that cover the usual expenses of home ownership. Last year we celebrated our 25th anniversary . We have kept costs reasonable by sharing the management responsibilities of our cooperative and much of its labor. We have 27 apartments including 1,2, and 3 bedroom units. The three bedroom family units are State Assisted Units and the owner's monthly carrying charge is 25% of their income. We are actively seeing families and couples (any combination of two people sharing an apartment who are interested in cooperative living, share our concern for the natural environment, and have leadership capabilities .

Applicants are required to attend a monthly Board meeting, a committee meeting, a work day, and a social event among other requirements. What that means is it will be easier for western residents to fulfill these obligations which may be spread over an 18 month period.

For more information and an application form to begin the process of being on the wait list, please call either 707-575-8946 or e-mail hlewis [at]
