Bohn Farm Cohousing Community Vision Statement
This community will design and build a wonderful sense of place on a historic six acre family farm in southwest Longmont near the St. Vrain River greenbelt and Izaak Walton Pond. An objective among the existing member, active families and adults who prefer healthy living practices, is to live independently among one-another in a supportive and thoughtful manner. We all believe in developing a community that is oriented around the cultivation and harvesting of agricultural systems, all mediums of art, and developing systems of sustainability and efficiency. These are some of the properties that fit within the existing community’s idea cohousing.

Join us to create the neighborhood that fulfills not only your vision but vision of like-minded individuals: a community with neighbors you feel comfortable collaborating with, spacious gardens, open space for our families to enjoy, two acres of city open space, develop access points to miles of the city’s biking & walking trail network, and so much more; there’s that much opportunity as long as you’re willing to work for it!

We are in the process of obtaining our final Site Plan Review from the City of Longmont (CoL) City Council; date of the vote October 27th, 2020. We believe that it will pass since we received a unanimous vote from the CoL Planning & Zoning commission. The Bohn Family would like to see a cohousing community developed on their historic family property. We are working towards conserving the beauty and rural nature of our site while integrating a modern feel that matches today’s trends. The existing neighborhood association has also warmed up to the existing cohousing members and the development.
