City Conversations next topic on October 6: Is Cohousing One Piece of Our Housing Puzzle?


Shared living isn’t for everyone, as attested by multitudes of Lower Mainland houses barricaded behind cedar hedges. But there are now a dozen cohousing projects around BC, and for those who value community over absolute privacy, it’s an option beyond condos and apartments. How does it work?

Later this month, the City’s housing summit targets the needs of those who work and live in Vancouver. Should cohousing be part of the mix?

Our Presenters are Vancouver Cohousing Co-founder and resident Ericka Stephens-Rennie, development consultant and urban planner Michael Mortensen, who is attracted to the concept; and real estate development consultant Herb Auerbach, ‘who likes to look at things holistically.’

Thursday, October 6
