“Ingenium is a small-scale community, housing eight to twelve expressive artists and their families” over time, according to a new meetup group and new website.
“As of spring 2014, we have located an ideal spot for our Ingenium Village. We are currently in purchase escrow for 48 acres in the Sierra Foothills, California, just a few miles from the small victorian town of Nevada City, with equal distance to neighboring Grass Valley,” according to a website ExpressiveArtsVillage.com.
“We also have a plan in mind to purchase and begin construction of the common-house in the spring of 2015.”
“Our team at this point consists of a prominant and local co-housing consultant, two realtors, a septic technician, a planning engineer, and a log-home agency. We are currently embarking on the steps needed in order to take the property out of escrow during this coming summer.”
“As of this writing, the total budget for this project is roughly two-million dollars, plus the cost of each individual dwelling. This covers land aquisition, subdivision, utility installation, and construction of the common house.”
