Making Community Housing a Reality

Thanks to your continued input and financial contributions, we are well on our way to stable year-round rental housing for Cortesians of all ages. We’ve secured 51 acres of flat, residentially-zoned land, within a five minute walk of central Mansons Landing. This will be the home of our first phase: Rainbow Ridge, a 20-unit, 6 acre development on the northern edge of the parcel.

The design process is well underway, and our funding campaign continues. With your help, Rainbow Ridge will:

  • Encourage a thriving and diverse island population of all ages and varied means
  • Reduce  poverty and homelessness
  • Insure family stability and a viable school system
  • Create and maintaining public walking trails to and from downtown Mansons Village
  • Increase local jobs for island mills, carpenters, value-added woodwork, and others
  • Kick-start our local economic plan (LEAP)
  • Maximize the use of local lumber from our community forest co-op
