<p>Describing New York City's first cohousing project, a New York Times article said cohousing speaks to people who want to own a home but not feel lost in an impersonal city. That's how we feel.</p>
<p>We also want to live sustainably, with a smaller carbon footprint. To know our neighbors, grow some of our own food and use our united buying power to support local farmers and dairies. To harvest rainwater. We want to model a more resilient way of life for the DFW metroplex.</p>
<p>We want to live in a diverse community, with old and young, singles, couples & families with children, varied backgrounds.</p>
<p>We're growing a community of like-minded folks who'd like to live cooperatively in urban Dallas, close to a DART station.</p>
<p>Our vision is that the community is affordable, with a lease-to-own option if possible.</p>
<p>We're at the forming stage, which means we're drawing together a core group of people willing to commit financially.</p>
<p>We have a contract on a possible site, Hipwell Sheet Metal, in the Cedars neighborhood. In the next two months we'll meet with the City of Dallas, to determine if we can re-develop the existing property affordably. We're also hiring an engineer to determine whether it's possible to retrofit the existing structures.</p>
<p>Join us if you'd like to be part of shaping a vision for a cooperative community in urban Dallas!</p>

Meetup has allowed me to meet people I wouldn't have met naturally - they're totally different than me.
