The Commons is a pleasant peaceful setting in which to socialize, work, dine with your neighbors. This is community living for those who value their privacy. There are many benefits to this lifestyle, from sharing meals to co-creating at work and play. It can take as little as a few seconds to locate a neighbor with a cup of (organic) sugar, or snowshoes to borrow through our email group. Chances to interact abound in our small gym, library, well appointed kitchen, trampoline, ping pong, open mic nights, art events, dances, yoga classes and more.

Our close-knit community’s lush setting provides a central plaza with fountain, cars are kept on the perimeter and we use carts to bring in our groceries. Sign up to share organic meals twice a week – or be part of the team providing one, attend any of the frequent parties, group work days, meetings, dances.

We have policies of no fragrance in our Common House, and no pesticide use on the property and a goal of zero waste. Community work hours are required, 6 per month per resident. There are chickens, if you want to join the coop co-op. We are just steps away from the riverside bike trail to town, Frenchy’s park, public transportation.
