The LLC worked with the Township to develop a Sustainability Ordinance which will allow an energy-efficient Cohousing model for 29 town houses and duplexes with a 55+ age restriction subject to Fair Housing Act (20% below 55). We are seeking a Silver Rating for the US Green Building Council’s SITES Sustainable Initiative.
Our professionals are proceeding with community workshops to finalize the site design and Common House with future residents, then with Subdivision and Land Development approval and building permits.
We currently have twenty member families, have invested over $500K, and are projecting prices in the high $300’s for 1-BR, 2-BR, and approx $500K for a duplex.
In the meantime, our non-profit entity, Kimberton EcoVillage, INC has the following:

“To promote and develop the Kimberton EcoVillage and other ecovillages, and to educate members and the public in sustainable methods and practices of developing and governing ecovillages.”


Member marketing
Member Governance through Task Circles (Buildings & Grounds, Governance, Membership and Outreach)
Organize and hold educational workshops for the Members and the public
Focus on sustainability as it applies to a model community
Train in group process – sociocracy, facilitation, non-violent communication
Pursue grants to reduce costs of this and other ecovillages
Maintain a library
Act as stewards of the Kimberton site and use best permaculture practices
Broaden the mission through attending conferences and connecting with other ecovillages
Model a work fair-share program
Develop a maintenance program and budget for the Kimberton project
Sponsor an intern program for students to explore and research aspects of ecovillages
To this end, this year we have reviewed and adopted revised bylaws, elected Officers, designated Charters for Task Circles and assigned Chairs of those Circles, expanded the Steering Committee, adopted a Budget, established an Annual Members Meeting, and acquired a Corporate Seal.
