12:45 PM - 3:00 PM

Co-housing forum

The ongoing foreclosure crisis, shifting demographics that include more single-parent households, an aging population and the associated cross-generational living, and growing interest in alternative housing options all combine to make cohousing an increasingly compelling housing choice. Cohousing has been developed successfully in many states in recent years but not yet in Ohio.

Mr. Charles Durrett, author of Cohousing: A Contemporary Approach to Housing Ourselves, and a pioneer in the field of cohousing development, will be the lead speaker at the forum. He has been involved in over fifty cohousing development projects.

Other panelists include:

  • Robert N. Brown, Director of the Cleveland City Planning Commission
  • Lillian Kuri, Director of Special Projects, The Cleveland Foundation
  • William A. Gould, Founder of ArtSpace Cleveland
  • Jay Gardner, Affordable Housing Director, Fairfax Renaissance Development Corporation
  • Keith Burgess, Senior VP of Community Development Lending, Charter One Bank
To RSVP, please contact Kim Scott at 664-3803, kscott@city.cleveland.oh.us
