Site Visit and Neighbourhood Walk

If you’ve heard about Our Urban Village Cohousing and are looking to find out more about the people and the place, then we’ve got a great opportunity for you. The best part is that it will be in person, not over Zoom!

Our upcoming social on Tuesday April 5, will allow you to get a feel for our future home and get to know some our members. Weather permitting, we plan to gather at the construction site, have a look around, check-out some floor plans, and then have a short walk through the neighbourhood to a local park where the kids can run around. This will allow you to socialize with existing members, meet other like-minded people at the same time as seeing how much progress has been made in building Tomo House.

When: Tuesday April 5, 5:30 pm – 7:00 pm (PDT)

Where: Corner of Main Street and Ontario Place followed by a short walk through the neighbourhood to a local park.

Let us know that you plan to join us by sending us an email.
