The Cedar Rock Cooperative (CRC) is looking for new community members, moving in as soon as April 1st. The CRC is an intentional community where we enjoy an active, community-based participation in the management of our property and resident controlled organization. We are located on N. Greensboro St. near Estes in Carrboro. There is a large,spacious kitchen and living room with large windows, and three bedrooms. There is also a washer and dryer also in each unit. There is an outdoor shed and bike rack available, and a small garden space.
Cost – $858 a month rent (plus a one-time $1,000 investment/deposit due prior to move in).
Living here requires a minimum 5-hour-per-month commitment to participating in our community (including yard work, administrative, and other duties as needed, in addition to a monthly meeting), and also requires at minimum a 1-year commitment. The leases self renew for 3 years after that. Benefits of membership include managing your own space/property, sharing of a repair fund, access to other cooperatives and social events, and voting privileges for the WCHA organization. We are a low-income housing community, so in order to be eligible to live here you must make less than $30,374/year (demonstrated with tax forms). In order to meet rental costs, you are welcome to get roommates or have family live with you. Immigrants welcome.
The application process consists of an electronic application, submitted as a reply to this ad, or after an initial contact with any questions (the application itself can be found on our website, http://cedarrockcoop.weebly.com/) You may apply as an individual or a group, and if you apply as an individual we can try to match you with other interested applicants if it seems like a good fit.
