Below is a message I posted to Cohousing-L http://cohousing.org/cohousing-L -- the mailing list about cohousing that I manage. (That link would have an introduction to the idea in case you are not familiar with it.) Basically "cohousing" is a contemporary way to build residential "community", that is a very cooperative supportive neighborhood. I hope the message below makes sense. Fred Subject: Minneapolis, MN house avail. next door to Fred Sometimes, in some contexts, I refer to our neighborhood as "Homewood Cohousing" and aspire to build a retrofit cohousing community. But we are a long way from it. But we do have a great block, with some great folks, with great racial diversity and a location close to many attractive features of Minneapolis. Renovation of the house next to us will soon be completed. It was built in 1930 and will have a new roof, new bath and kitchen, redecorating etc etc. It has 3+ bedrooms. The expected sale price is around $200,000. Since it is adjacent to our house there is the possibility of shared landscaping and yard use. We would very much like to have community oriented folks living in this house. We are in easy biking distance of downtown Minneapolis (~2 miles), the University of MN (~4 miles), Wirth Park (6 blocks- a large regional park with a lake -- see http://www.minneapolisparks.org/default.asp?PageID=4&parkid=255 ) North Minneapolis where we are located is currently disproportionately suffering from foreclosures related to the subprime lending collapse and has long been the less desireable part of town and been challenged by crime. However in many ways it is a great place to live -- particularly in the Homewood area. If you or anyone you know is interested in community living in an urban setting in Minneapolis, send them our way.
