Participation is at the heart of cohousing.
We have an expectation that all community members will participate in the maintenance and decision-making of the community.
Community Meetings: Highline Crossing's community meetings take place quarterly. Meeting dates and times vary depending on the season.
Work Days: We have required work days each quarter to help maintain our common property. In addition, there is an expectation that members will participate on a team and attend community meetings on a regular basis.
