For a live but virtual introduction to our community, join one of our weekly Zoom sessions, any Thursday 5:30-6:30 p.m. Pacific time.
We are forming a multigenerational community just north of Seattle, Washington. Marysville is commuting distance from Seattle, with transit located about 10 minutes away, and commuter buses going direct to major employers in the area. We are an inclusive community and welcome families, single people, older adults and people of all races, cultures, and gender identity. Community members will live in their own home, on “fee simple” lots (you own both your home and the lot it’s on), with a Home Owner’s Association as the way we manage the common areas. Our homes will be as environmentally green as possible, and will all be “solar ready” for solar panels if desired. We already have a large organic garden, berry patch and fruit trees.
Sunnyside Village Cohousing is a satisfying mix of people of different ages, philosophy, socioeconomic status, cultures and races, genders and sexual orientation who support and care for each other and the community in a way that makes the world a better place.
In our cohousing community, we hold as values:
To be supportive of each other and tolerant of each other’s uniqueness, strengths and challenges
To strive to be self aware, honest, kind, tolerant, patient and supportive of each other
To respect each other’s varying needs for privacy
To respect people at each stage of development- youth, adult, and senior
To use Universal Design to enable seniors to age in place
To be respectful in the community in regard to noise, the impact my behavior may have on others, and to clean up after myself, my pets and my children
To support each individual’s involvement and expression of these values rather than having one community mission
To willingly contribute my time, efforts and financial resources toward making these values possible
In the wider community we hold as values:
To be an inspiration to others
To improve our world by living lightly and sustainably on the planet
To be environmentally responsible: reduce, reuse, recycle
To be a better community for the planet than we could be individually
To demonstrate how consensus and cooperation can help people thrive
To make decisions for long term success and sustainability rather than short term fixes
To contribute to peace, harmony and sanity in the world
