The details aren’t finalized, but it looks like we will be opening a new co-op in South Boulder in September! This will be the first non-profit owned, permanently affordable co-op to make use of Boulder’s new cooperative housing ordinance, which was passed in January. If you are interested in helping to found a new community, or if you are part of an existing rental cooperative and would like a permanent home, check out the tentative details here!
In order to get potential co-op members familiar with each other and the project, the BHC is hosting a weekly series of potlucks in cooperation with Boulder’s broader housing co-op community. If you’re interested in helping to found the Ingram co-op, please join us! In person interaction with the other potential members and the BHC’s Development Committee is a prerequisite for becoming a member of the new co-op. Dates and locations of currently scheduled events:
- Sunday, September 24th, 5:30-7:30pm, Ostara Co-op 2550 9th St., (Facebook Event)
- Sunday, October 1st, 5:30-7:30pm, Chrysalis Co-op 2127 16th St., (Facebook Event)
The Boulder Housing Coalition (BHC) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit Community Housing Development Organization dedicated to creating affordable, sustainable, community-enhancing, cooperative housing for the people of Boulder county. We currently manage three permanently affordable rental cooperatives in central Boulder: Masala, Chrysalis, and Ostara! These co-ops are home to more than 50 people, and make up the first affordable cooperative housing system in Colorado. We are working to create a federation of housing cooperatives that will provide both affordable rental and home ownership opportunities.
