From Dream to Reality: Lessons learned in creating successful communities and how to control costs with Kathryn (Katie) McCamant from Cohousing Solutions
Katie McCamant has worked as an architect, developer, development consultant with dozens of North American communities over the last 35 years. Katie will share some of the lessons learned from working with a wide variety of cohousing groups and specifically, key points to succeeding in creating your community. Bring your questions for Katie as she’ll try to leave plenty of time for that.
Katie brings the depth and diversity of her 35 years of experience as a developer, architect, and cohousing resident to benefit her clients. Coauthor of Cohousing: A Contemporary Approach to Housing Ourselves, the book that introduced cohousing to North America, and more recently, Creating Cohousing: Building Sustainable Communities, Katie co-founded McCamant & Durrett Architects/The CoHousing Company with Charles Durrett. More recently, she started CoHousing Solutions as a development consulting firm to share best practices and systems for successful collaborative development. She works with urban, suburban and rural communities all across North America, helping them define and implement their development strategy and build the professional team they need. She also founded the 500 Communities Program to train other professionals to work in this realm. She lived for 12 years at Doyle Street Cohousing in the San Francisco Bay Area, and now lives at Nevada City Cohousing in the Sierra Foothills.
