Exploring cohousing in the Heights
To the Editor:
A Cleveland Heights group is looking into starting a cohousing community. Cohousing offers a way to downsize, live actively engaged, and raise children in a safe, supportive neighborhood.
Cohousing clusters private homes around shared common space, which typically includes a common house for gatherings, shared gardens and recreational spaces. Privacy and private space are built into community design, balanced with members' intention to actively participate in the design and management of their neighborhood. Sharing interests, maintenance, and household needs, such as child or elder care, helps strengthen neighborhood cohesion.
We will look for a site that can include about 20 households, located within a walkable neighborhood of Cleveland Heights. For more information see the Heights CoHousing Facebook page, or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
