Connelly Creek Co-Housing is a new vibrant collaborative community located in the Happy Valley neighborhood of Bellingham Washington. With a firm conviction that a pocket community is not only supportive to its members but also a living part of it's natural surroundings, Connelly Creek will not be developed at nature's expense. From the ground up, Connelly Creek is committed to the principles of environmental sustainability with uncompromising green benchmarks in the areas of low impact site development, energy, water use, & deep green materials. The passive solar homes will have a small foot-print, with healthy living environments utilizing low maintenance and durable materials. The sites and homes will have a sense of privacy while having a connection to the greater community. The existing farmhouse will have space for large gatherings, feasts and overnight guests Committed to the concept of urban agriculture as one of the hallmarks of a resilient community, Connelly Creek will provide space for food-production and also has resident llamas who contribute both delight and great compost for the gardens. In addition to the existing farm house, there will be a total of 11 home sites at Connelly Creek which have home designs ready or can be custom built to suit. Each site is approximately 3000 square feet with the remaining acreage held in common. Connelly Creek Co-Housing meets the principles of New Urbanism including walkability and connectivity with this great location being within a 1 mile distance to all amenities. Backing up to Connelly Creek Park provides a nature buffer and access to trails for walking and biking. Connelly Creek Co-Housing will speak to those who are interested in living a green, low impact lifestyle in a resilient multi-age community of like minded people.
Come explore this proposed new co-housing community. We'll be meeting at Millworks Co-Housing for questions and answer prior to touring the new site and farm house just down the street.
