Our Beginning

Altair EcoVillage began with a small group of elders called STAR (Seniors for Talents and Resources). They had heard about Cohousing as a model for living together and had explored a site or two, speaking with professionals to start the process.

Today, through many meetings, conferences, site plans, developers, and folks who have come and gone, we have settled on what we think is an ideal site in a walkable community. We are close to getting a special Zoning Ordinance on the  site. We have adopted the name “EcoVillage” to reflect our desire to work on healing the planet and building community, with Cohousing as the model for the housing we seek to build. Come join us!

“There is a great need for the introduction of new values in our society,
where bigger is not necessarily better, where slower can be faster, and where less can be more.”


  • Diversity

  • Community interaction and privacy

  • Ecologically sound buildings and open spaces 

Core Values


We believe that trust and respect are fostered in
an active neighborhood environment.
