‘Cohousing’ proposed in Midland area

       Potential members/ investors for a planned “cohousing community” in the Midland area are invited to a meeting at the Old Colorado City Library Wednesday, Oct. 27 at 6 p.m.
       On display will be plot plans, architectural styles and floor plans, according to spokesperson JoAnn Gaston.
       Modeled after a similar development near Columbia Street and Corona Avenue east of downtown, the concept calls for up to 30 homes on less than one acre laid out in a way “to encourage community”, Gaston said. “Our vision is to create an inclusive, earth-friendly community that fosters supportive relationships based on respect, cooperation and fun.”
       The library is at 2418 W. Pikes Peak Ave.
       For more information, call Gaston at 264-1997.
