As of Jan 2021, we have 6 committed households and are looking for more! We’ve adopted sociocracy as our governance model after several of us took a class from Diana Leafe Christian and have started to use the techniques in our weekly meetings. We’re currently working on developing the necessary infrastructure to support growth in 2021 with a focus on both membership/marketing and finance/legal. We are fortunate that one of our members owns a 10 acre farm that is zoned for residential development, removing one huge hurdle for forming groups. Chuck Durrett of The Cohousing Company performed a feasibility study last year and suggested the property could support around 40-45 homes. The group that we are forming in 2021 will make key decisions about the way the community develops – things like intergenerational or senior, one big community or two smaller ones. The farm is two miles east of downtown Puyallup, WA with a gorgeous view of Mt Rainier and easy access to the Sounder commuter rail north to Seattle and south to Tacoma and Lakewood. If you are interested in influencing the start of a new cohousing community in Puyallup, Washington then go to the website for more information and fill out the contact form – we would love to talk to you!
