VISION

     Oak Park Commons is Illinois' first intergenerational cohousing community.  The group is planning, constructing and opening the doors to a 24-family building in Oak Park, Illinois that features shared common spaces to foster social interaction among residents and a building that promotes energy conservation practices and environmental sustainability.  A solid foundation of kind, community-minded families comprises  the core of  Oak Park Commons Cohousing, and we are excited for families like yours to join in our vision!  Interested?  Click here to learn more!

Established in January 2018, the group has grown to 10 committed families and continues to plan and grow toward its goal membership of 15 committed families, initiating the site selection and architectural design process.  Learn more about us here.

Diverse households form an intentional residential community. They take time to learn about each other and create a vision of the place they will share. Then they build a common space with adjoining private dwellings. 

Empty nester boomers are torn between resentment at increasing taxes and grief at the prospect of moving somewhere more affordable. Young households looking to purchase a home in Oak Park cannot afford to buy a home. What can we do to make a place where both groups could live together?
