Who are we and what makes cohousing special?

Cohousing communities are intentional, collaborative neighborhoods created with a little ingenuity. They bring together the value of private homes with the benefits of more sustainable living. That means residents own their “own homes”. They actively participate in the design and operation of their communities, share common facilities, and good connections with neighbors. — Help us launch cohousing in Southern Nevada by building a strong network of understanding and support, person by person and community by community.

UPCOMING WORKSHOP AND EVENTS

Innovative. Sustainable. Home.

We are a small but enthusiastic core group seeking potential residents who want to build the very first cohousing community in Southern Nevada! In early stage of development; we have formed our legal entity, have selected a site, and are reaching out to find others who want to join us in building this community. We envision a development of 20-30 independent, intentional homes close to shops, restaurants, parks, recreation, biking/hiking trails, and transportation.

Like other west coast groups in this forming stage, we have been studying and inquiring, aiming to utilize and maximize the invaluable counsel and guidance of others who have done this before. We are ready to move forward with like-minded individuals who want to live in the uniquely appealing mix that is Southern Nevada. We want the same commitment to healthy living, mutual respect and support, sustainability, collaboration, and the cultivation of community as all cohousing models, only we want to do it here in this invigorating and challenging urban desert climate.

Whether you already live in Southern Nevada or are considering relocation, we welcome you to join us. Email us at: snvcohousing@gmail.com.
