Madison East Side Co-Housing (MESCoH) is a group of individuals seeking to establish, design and create a community of homes and common spaces on the East Side of Madison, Wisconsin based on the co-housing model. We are exploring several potential locations for our co-housing community, including the proposed development at Union Corners. Members of MESCoH have expressed interest in such features as green-building, walkable neighborhoods, community gardens, outdoor common areas, and street design featuring traffic calming.

MESCoH invites like-minded individuals with shared values and a commitment to participatory decision-making to join us as we develop our vision and mission statement and move forward to create a welcoming and diverse community that is affordable, intergenerational, LGBTQ- and senior-friendly, and dedicated to preserving the quality of life and vibrancy of our east side neighborhood.

Update: This was written two years ago at the beginning of the dreaming and development stage of creating a new LGBT-friendly, diverse, and inclusive cohousing community. There have been many exciting changes. To learn more about CohoMadison and how you can become a member of Madison’s newest cohousing community, click here
