Here at Boulder Creek Community we are proud to have a non-traditional cohousing design. We are what is called an in-fill cohousing community where an existing structure or set of buildings is filled-in by community members to create cohousing. Our founder, Greg, purchased 17 units (apartment-style condominiums) inside a 363-unit condominium complex situated on a 12 acre creekside property. Members of our cohousing community either rent these units or, after they have committed to the community, may chose to buy them from Greg (see the Rent/Buy page for details). Like many cohousing communities, we also have a few members who live “off-campus” elsewhere in Boulder, but who attend our events or hold seats in our core group.
Our community is centered around the idea of service. We have a core group that is responsible for hosting events related to one of four core themes related to service:
At Boulder Creek Community we also have a Common House that serves as a hub for larger events and meals. Our Common House is a four-story townhouse with a kitchen, large living room and dining space on the main floor, and guest and residential rooms on the other floors. The Common House residents also host events for the community, with a focus on having fun, making music, and eating delicious food.
