What Affects Affordability?
Although a modern suburb is designed for an inward focus and
the isolation of the home from the
community, a cooperative housing community encourages the interaction of its residents by design.
The common house is an integral component of most communities. Neighbors interact on a daily basis at the common house. It is generally:
1. Central to the community
2. Accessed by pleasing pedestrian walkways rather than suburban streets and driveways.
3. Easily accessed by each private home.
Community meals are usually prepared in the kitchen of the common house by residents on a rotating basis. The schedule for community dinners is decided by the community and shared by members as desired. No rules say you must participate.
That said, these meals and the times before and after the meals are an important aspect of community life. Residents socialize and interact here on a regular basis.
