Current primary goals are spreading the word about the co-op and involving as many people as possible now, in the beginning stages.

Activities planned for the coming months: location research, a neighborhood resident survey, and completion of feasibility and marketing studies. The community's help and input is essential to move this process forward! The co-op will need a minimum of 500 paid members-owners to break ground.
