    We don’t have a community per se, just a shared house with some cool people. However, I’ve studied intentional communities for 25 plus years and am open to collaborating in some capacity with others in creating or joining a community.

  • Membership Process

    Just a suburban house

Mission Statement:

Sustainable Land Use Planning

Community Description:

We run an educational nonprofit organization and focus on moral evolution, current events, governmental structure, land use planning, and car-free city designs; see: www.priorities.org and www.gr8city.com. We create models for autoless, livable cities for eco-homes to cities up to 90,000 people. We are offering design work for eco-cities, intentional communities, and cohousing for select groups. Ideally, we’d love to have investors to create a development. We’re also open to join a community, preferably an Ithaca-ecovillage-type development. We’re not of a particular religion, but we are tolerant. We love reading, designing sustainable communities, well-behaved pets and kids, research and writing, visiting hip communities, educational programs, homeschooling, history, gardening, light partying, controlled drinking, silly humor, tasty foods, lotsa friends, meeting interesting folks, music, living in the here and now while reflecting on the past and planning a better future.
