Make financial commitment
Active seniors who care about our planet, seek meaningful relationships yet respect privacy and to live in energy efficient homes.
9/26/14 (PLEASE NOTE: Our website is being updated)
We are pleased to announce that McKenzie Green Commons has formed a relationship with Kulshan Community Land Trust and Ally Community Development Co. that will enable McKenzie Green Commons to move forward.
KulshanCLT has a well established and successful program for assisting home buyers of limited means, and Ally brings the management expertise needed to develop the land and build the homes. Both share the value of community creation and interests in building energy efficient, healthy homes, which meshes perfectly with our vision. McKenzie Green Commons will become a neighborhood of people, some of whom can afford market valued homes and others assisted by community investments.
The vision remains the same: twelve modest, energy efficient, homes within a tranquil natural setting; a community of active adults, 55 plus, who care deeply about our environment and the impact we have on our planet; and where there’s a shared desire to have meaningful relationships balanced with the need for privacy and independence.
The model being created is a financially diverse community (legally a condominium) having shared open space, a common house, storage/shop building and vegetable garden. Five of the twelve units will be purchased by people selected and assisted by KulshanCLT. Seven will be market valued homes.
LOCATION: Bellingham, Washington’s desirable Fairhaven Neighborhood, McKenzie Green Commons will be a residential community of individually owned, single family homes where the land, a social hall, and shared gardens have common ownership. And this, just a short walk to the trails, library, market, and restaurants.
