History of MSC:
The groundwork for our project was laid in 2016 by our founders, who are longtime residents of Belmont, Mass. By January 2017, we had formed an LLC and a core group that met regularly. In September 2017, we hired Katie McCamant (Cohousing Solutions, Inc.), the preeminent cohousing development consultant in North America, who is guiding our journey. In July 2018, we partnered with developer Matthew Blackham, who is searching for land and who will act as our project manager and take us through construction. In September 2018, we began implementing dynamic governance (aka sociocracy) as our governance system. Our mailing list has grown to 800 names (as of May 2019).
We are moving forward with growing our group, member commitments, site search, getting training in dynamic governance, and growing our group identity and connections.
We are looking for people to join us in this exciting journey!
