August 2018 Newsletter
Same group as "Novato Cohousing Now" - new name and logo!
Welcome to our 1st Newsletter
 as C Street Village!
We hope that you are enjoying reading about our plans and will to join us this Saturday, August 11th 1-4 PM, when we meet in Terra Linda at the Muller residence. RSVP to for address.
We have come a long way towards the design of our community (site plan), Common House and private houses through a series of workshops that took place from December 2017 through the end of June 2018. We expect to have design drawings by mid-August and submit to the City of Novato in September. We are expecting to control the land within the next year and break ground in early 2020. Stay tuned for more details about our community's plans...

We currently have 15 out of 31 households and are looking for more families to join our community!
Here is Elina, who is on our Marketing Committee displaying a shirt with our new logo!
Meet the Community Members
Meet Krista, Ben, and Mitch
Greetings! We've been interested in cohousing for years and are so excited to join a community forming in the Bay Area! We look forward to common meals, community gardening, neighborly company, and collaborative decision making . We are a teacher and social worker who love the outdoors, the kitchen (and other people's kitchens), listening to podcasts, and exploring new places together on foot, bike, and flotation device. We're thrilled that our baby will have playmates, older sibs, and lots of aunts and uncles in his daily life at C Street.
Meet Rob & Rosa
Rob and Rosa are Northern California natives who have come to appreciate what Marin has to offer. When not working or caring for their infant daughter, they enjoy hiking, trail running, camping, backpacking, and other outdoor pursuits. They also enjoy travel, cooking, and working on projects. Rob is a cynical idealist and Rosa is a idealistic realist, and both have experience with cooperative living. Both are looking forward to putting down deeper roots in the North Bay.
