First affordable rental building in Sebastopol
At Petaluma Avenue Homes, cohousing principles are applied in the community garden, common house, and abundant open space, encouraging all residents to come together to build their community. Green design is also featured prominently. Solar panels reduce external energy use, bioswales collect and filter runoff water to remove pollutants, and recycled materials were used in construction to reduce resource use.
Petaluma Avenue Homes is the first affordable rental building in Sebastopol in ten years and one of the first affordable rental cohousing communities in the nation.
