“Cohousers are simply creating consciously the community that used to occur naturally.”
Hans S. Anderson, Cohousing organizer
- A cohousing neighborhood is composed of privately owned homes and/or condos clustered around a shared open space, garden and facilities such as a dining hall and kitchen, workshop space, children’s area, guest rooms, lounge area, pool, etc.
- Shared spaces create the heart of the community where people can gather for common dinners and other activities while preserving the privacy of each family in their own home.
- A pedestrian, family, and senior friendly neighborhood is created by keeping cars to the exterior of the site.
- Future residents participate in the development and design of the community so that it reflects their real needs and priorities, creating the type of socially and environmentally sustainable, 21st century, neighborhood that is growing in popularity across the country.
We are looking for people who might be interested in joining us in our Auburn adventure.
We want to create and live in this kind of ideal neighborhood.
Won't you be our neighbor??
Placer County Government Center
Our cohousing development will be located on Atwood Road in North Auburn at the far southwest corner of the Placer County Government Center, in a wooded area that is separated from the rest of the Government Center by a pond to the north and a proposed park to the east. The Government Center is the site of a World War II Army Hospital that is being transformed into a showplace for Auburn and Placer County with housing, shops, and government offices. Take a look at the exciting proposals of the Government Center Master Plan
Here's a map and formal description of the Government Center Master Plan (we're at the lower left corner of the first map):
