How did you hear about East Bay Cohousing?

Co-housing has been on my wishlist for years. It has been too expensive, too white and too exclusive for some years. Any movement to change that is great! When I had kids it was not affordable. More alternatives that are closer to the Scandinavian original seem to be filtering in now. I've followed Raines Cohen and the evolution of co-housing in CA for many years..gone to meetings, etc.

What does Cohousing mean to you?

Living in a setting where I have my own simple living quarters and share community space, gardens, kids, activities, life.

What's most likely: Rent, Buy, Share, Build, Co-create?

In order maybe: Co-create, Share, Buy, Rent, Build as needed

Where are you most interested in living?

With like minded folks..Fruitvale, East Oakland, Allendale Park, Laurel, etc. I want a multi-cultural inclusive setting.


I'm a long time resident in the Allendale Park District and my street, Bartlett, is a few blocks away from the Kingfisher. I have a sense of community with this district and have been active in Neighborhood Watch, etc. to keep it a liveable area.
