Welcome, Co-Housing Neighbors

The Blue Ridge Cohousing project was approved by the Albemarle Board of Supervisors on Wednesday night.

What is Blue Ridge Cohousing? 

Blue Ridge Cohousing is a group of families working to establish cohousing in Crozet near Charlottesville in beautiful Central Virginia.

What is cohousing?     

Cohousing neighborhoods combine the advantages of private homes with the benefits of more sustainable living, including shared common facilities and ongoing connections with neighbors. These intentional neighborhoods, created and managed by residents, offer an innovative solution to today’s environmental and social challenges. 

I am curious to learn more about the project, and the “car-free” design of the neighborhood.

Their development goals are goals that would be good to be adopted by more than just co-housing projects:

– Environmentally sound construction
– Includes affordable housing
– Includes housing for disabled residents
– Houses are visitable to the disabled
– Homes should be $150K to $400K

Learn more at their website.
