What Affects Affordability?
A community can be defined as a group of people who interact and share certain things as a group. A common definition of the word community is a group of people who live in close proximity. Both of the above are certainly true of a cooperative housing group and, to a lesser extent, even of an ecovillage.
Some communities share both location and other attributes. Members often choose to live near each other because of one or more common interests. An intentional community is a deliberate residential community with a much higher degree of social interaction than other communities. The members of an intentional community typically hold a common social, political or spiritual vision and share responsibilities and resources.
Some examples of intentional cooperative housing communities are:
Community building can use a wide variety of practices, ranging from simple events such as potlucks
or educational meetings to larger–scale efforts such as festivals.
Again cooperative housing is an intentional community and is planned and shared by the residents.
