Mission Statement:

eco village for colorado

Community Description:

Who doesn’t want to live in a cool eco-village? Thousands in Colorado want to. And everything is here that is needed to get a project going. So let get started!

We are forming a vibrant group of potential villagers for a front range large-scale Eco Village, aka, Eco Town.

“Share the low-impact high-fun lifestyle.”

The project includes:

The Greenest “Simple Living” Homes with the latest affordable green tech.
Community-run Organic Farm with community-raised animals!
A Volunteer-run Food Coop with bulk-purchased prices!
Community-built Entertainment spaces!
Community-built Educational spaces!
A green transportation hub with car share and shuttles.
Vibrant outdoor spaces!

Rooted in the “best practices” principles of cohousing, eco-villages, and successful European models.

As a gift to your future community, please take 5 minutes to get into our database of potential members. That’s how we grow.

There’s recent updates on the website about what we’ve been up to, along with a blog.

(Update: Wow, people are filling out the juicy survey, and that’s really getting the ball rolling. Your village is growing! Over 500 households, next stop is 1000.)

Front Range Eco Town is a vessel for the full spectrum of people who would like to join one of the neighborhoods. Let’s not exclude anyone who wants to make a move!
