We’re Expecting!…Errr… EXPANDING!

We have some very exciting new developments here at Monterey CoHousing Community… On June 29th, we signed a letter of agreement to launch the EXPANSION DEVELOPMENT PROCESS!

Yes, you read that right.


Star of Bethlehem Home

Original building, Star of Bethlehem Home which became MoCoCo!

At the monthly Board meeting on June 24, through our consensus process, the Board agreed to move forward and contract with Urban Works for a concept plan.  We also set aside a funding structure to pay for this plan, soil borings, and  the continuing cost of developing. By creating a “builder” level of affiliation to MoCoCo, new families and residents will be able to make decisions in the design and building process. I think typing that out makes me a real grown-up now!

Cornerstone 1924

Main Building Cornerstone, 1924

Urban Works Architecture is working up a concept plan for the construction of up to EIGHT NEW UNITS, likely a combination of townhouses and flats, along the southeast section of our property.

If you are interested in joining our beautiful community, NOW IS THE TIME!

One of the 7 Townhouses added to MoCoCo property in the phase 2 expansion. There are 8 units in the big building making a total of 15 households currently at MoCoCo

Our next open house will be this Sunday, July 29th from 1 to 2 pm. Immediately after this tour + Q & A we will have a short break and then a presentation of the first draft of the concept plan by Bart Nelson of Urban Works. This should take about an hour or so depending on questions.

For those who would like to hang out with a little longer to get to know our community better, we will be having a community meal at 6 pm. The cost for the meal is $5 per person and $2.50 for 12 and under. It is a great time to see how community meals at MoCoCo work and get a taste of the Co-Housing lifestyle!

Please RSVP with the number of people attending the meeting and/or the meal on our CONTACT US page. Let us know if you will be needing any childcare during the meeting. Also, if you are interested in beginning the membership process and purchasing a new unit but are not able to attend this meeting please let us know through our CONTACT US page and we can keep you in the loop.

Looking forward to seeing many of you on the 29th as our community embarks on this new adventure!
