Our Mission Statement

Flower City Cohousing Community is an intentional cohousing community in an urban setting which values the sharing of resources, sustainability, and simplicity. We are committed to cooperation, consensus building, and diversity. In the larger community, we strive to be a socially and an ecologically responsible neighbor.

Our Plan

We are committed to living within Rochester’s city limits. We envision approximately 20 housing units. Our community will include private homes in the form of duplexes/townhomes as well as a multi-story building with apartment/condo units and the Common House. Depending on the site, housing will range from studios to 1- to 3-bedroom units, each with a full kitchen, bathroom(s) and living room. The Common House will include a large kitchen and multi-use room suitable for community dinners, meetings, and celebrations. It will also include space for things like shared tools and equipment, a laundry room, guest rooms, and recreation areas.
