Millrace Cohousing is a small 14 unit development of individual homes along with a common house located along an old canal within easy walking distance from downtown Goshen, IN a city of about 30,000 population. Goshen is a vibrant small college city that has many artists, a annual movie festival, and a very developed trail system within the city as well as paved bike and pedestrian trails linking to other villages. The city and area has a very comprehensive hospital and health care system. The cohousing design layout uses the pocket neighborhood concept with the front doors of all homes facing inward toward the central corridor of lawn area and rain gardens with a dual set of sidewalks running down the corridor. Homes along the street have garages on the street and homes along the canal have an assigned carport at either end. There is a common parking lot for guests. All of the lots in the cohousing community have been sold and eleven are occupied. Two are currently under construction and we expect the common house to be built this year. The common house will be used for social gatherings as well as a least one weekly common meal. The owners of the one remaining lot expect to have their home built next year which will finish the development. Although all our members are currently seniors 55 and up, we are open to having younger families with children join our group as resales become available. Our member households consist of 8 couples and 6 singles. Our group manages with a leadership team and several committees handling finances, landscaping, and gardering. Our objective is for all members to volunteer and use their gifts to maintain the common areas.
