Jackson Place Cohousing (JPC) is a vibrant, well-organized, self-managed urban community. It was built in 2001 in a peaceful, green setting near downtown Seattle in a neighborhood that offers transportation by bus, bike, car, or walking. JPC is a well-established, family- and animal-friendly, multi-generational community. There are 27 homes, with approximately forty adults and twenty children, ranging in age from babies to people in their 80s.
The community is dedicated to creating and sustaining an environment where residents treat each other and our common spaces with respect, care, and consideration; we strive to create an atmosphere in which all residents can share in community work and benefit from our sharing of resources.
We value using consensus for making community decisions, sharing work and social activities, and cooperating on various neighborhood projects with our surrounding neighbors.
