A multi-stage process

We value building our interpersonal community first, with land and structures to follow, for our relationships will shape the landscape and the many choices we will make.  A multi-stage process for joining Kyloring Housing Co-operative assists prospective members in learning about us and deciding whether the community will be a good fit for them.

Because living in cohousing is new for many of us, we offer opportunities for prospective members to participate in the social richness that is otherwise hard to come by, and to participate and share in decision-making and responsibilities. We want to make sure everyone has a chance to explore many aspects of cohousing life before making a commitment to the community.

We’ve identified several steps to help families and individuals who are interested in the project determine whether they wish to make an eventual commitment.
