This Community is Re-forming
Short version of a longer story: fortunity is currently seeking core members to complete and then restart the next phase of its development. There is a larger infrastructure but there are not enough skilled, committed, or financially stable members to effectively move forward. Thus we’ve taken some time to reformat the written material and seek others committed to its vision-mission. One of our properties is for sale, and we’re considering another variation on our ‘farm’. We are currently maintaining shorter-term / interim rental housing in most spaces until more core or invested members are found.
We’re currently cleaning up the properties, starting gardens, and working towards re-opening a multi-use commercial building with an education and information themed business model. We believe in open and honest dialogue and place a heavy emphasis on relationship building as a foundation to create a safe and inviting experience.
Please be aware we are currently ‘on hold’ at the moment, seeking more core-committed or equity-invested members to proceed more effectively.
Our goal is creating an urban community lifestyle based on a complex combination of residential, commercial, and rural properties with interwoven related projects. Our passion above and beyond living and working together is communication — in many forms. Though we may tend towards lengthy and intensive planning discussions at times, the goal is to apply the results in productive fashion. Check out our website for more info, and to schedule a visit or tour if curious.
Please also note: we would best be defined as ‘spiritual not religious’, represent many different ideologies, dietary paths, and cultivate open minded but grounded and healthy lifestyle choices. Pets, addictions, and most substance-use are not welcome here, but responsible and conscious living definitely is.
