Process Overview

Providing support through each phases of cohousing community development.

Creating successful cohousing communities depends on the involvement and cooperation of a range of key players in the process. The outline below maps the basic contours of the cohousing development process and identifies key goals and milestones along the way. Because levels of knowledge and experience vary widely within groups attempting to create cohousing, Village Resources is prepared to customize our level of involvement during each phase to ‘fill in the gaps’ and to suit the specific needs of the project.
