get connected

Do you have a bunch of questions and want to start to get to know the group?At this phase in the process we can connect you with one of our members as a “buddy.” You can come to meetings, get to know our members and join us for gatherings. At this stage, you are not able to participate in the consensus process, but we always love insight and input.

Ready to explore further?  After you have attended some meetings and it feels right to become more involved, you can become an Explorer.  Explorers come to regular meetings, join up with a committee and make small monthly financial contributions towards an "organizational fee.". If you move forward your contributions will eventually go towards reserving your spot in line for a home. 


Become a Member

When you are ready to be a member and reserve a home, you make an investment in the project and secure your place in line for home selection. Once you have made this commitment, you are considered an Alpenglow Cohousing Member with full rights and privileges.

Why invest now? The sooner you jump in, the higher priority you have in selecting your home! And, you can feel the pride and beauty of creating this neighborhood that will be gift to Ridgway for generations to come. And, you will have a higher financial return on your investment.
