The Right Site

Price: $60

What we learned in Laura's site design workshop, at the 2006 Cohousing Conference, completely changed the way our forming group looked at our prospective site. It led to a major shift in our plans - ultimately, we walked away from that property without any investments. Chris adds even more expertise in identifying and acquiring sites - what a combination!

How do you choose the right site for your community. How do you know what will work? This workshop will explore the process of searching for sites, recording your efforts to share with others, and evaluating sites for actual development. Does the sewer and water work? Do you have adequate access - for fire trucks, delivery vehicles, and to meet local design standards? And most importantly, does your vision of community fit on this land, and can you see yourself living there?

Following presentations we will lead you through a hands-on exercise that will show you how to find and then test a site. If you already have a site that you would like to test, bring a 1:20 scale plan to the workshop and we'll help you!
