The Housing Market

A recent article in our local paper highlighted the increasing numbers of home sales and higher selling prices. If you’ve been considering a move to cohousing but the real estate market in your area was so bad that you have had to postpone your plans, you might want to take another look.

Currently, we still have a number of homes available for sale, an inventory that built up during the real estate recession. Prices for these homes haven’t been raised yet, but that’s bound to change. We’ve already sold 2 homes this year to new Villagers, and we’d like to welcome more folks into our community.

So take a look at what we have to offer and let us know if you have any questions.

Protecting Arizona Waters

It’s hard to overestimate the impact of water in our high desert environment as our own Donna Putschoegl so aptly said in her Talk of the Town article in the Prescott Daily Courier.

So Manzanita Village is teaming up with the Citizens Water Advisory Group (CWAG) and the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) at Yavapai College to present a six-session course entitled, “Protecting Arizona Waters - A Personal Plan.” During the course, students will learn to use an environmental problem-solving model to evaluate local water issues. They will have an opportunity to evaluate their personal impact on water usage and to plan their own water stewardship efforts. The course will combine classroom instruction with field trips. In the classroom, local experts and politicians will discuss the status of Prescott area water resources and the local history of water usage and politics, as well as water conservation efforts. Field trips will give class participants opportunities to visit local sites engaged in water conservation, water catchment and wise water usage, as well as the chance to participate in a hands-on installation of water catchment devices. 

This course consists of six 2-hour sessions presented weekly on Tuesday afternoons from 1 to 3 pm. Sessions will begin April 1 and continue through May 6. Registration begins the first week of March. Register on-line or call 717-7634 for more information.

Funding for the course has been provided by an EPA grant through Prescott College and its partners.
