One year into our existence, the UVC group is growing slowly and still working on finding a site in the Boston area. We are exploring one potential opportunity to partner with a developer on an existing project but we are also expanding our search area beyond our initial focus in the Cambridge/Somerville area. We are looking for open land (minimum size .75 acre), an apartment building to rehab or commercial property that could be reconfigured/rezoned to include residential and commercial uses.
We ran a well attended “Co-housing 101” gathering in July and are now working on a schedule of workshops and seminars over the next few months to help us decide on a preferred method of governance, focus on more detailed needs/wants analysis regarding space.
We meet on the 4th Tuesday of every month in the evening – please get in touch if you’d be interested in attending a meeting to learn more about us!
