The N Street CoHousing is one of the more interesting community things in Davis. Years ago, about 10-12 houses on N Street all agreed to remove their backyard fences to create a private community area. They now have a common house, gardens, chickens, compost piles, a trampoline, and play structures for their children.

They request that prospective visitors contact them before visiting in person - after all, these are their homes.

If you are interested in visiting or living at N Street you can let them know [WWW]here. If just generally interested in cooperative housing, there is also a [WWW]shared applicant pool maintained by the Davis Cooperative Community Network (DCCN).

N Street hosts the Start Cooperative Housing workshops, in collaboration with DCCN.

2011-09-07 13:43:01   I love the new community exchange (aka free pile) structure and I think it's a great idea to keep the items protected. I heard that the City of Davis is fining you all $500 a day for building it, though! I wonder if people can get together and ask the city not to do that... —SallyHensel
