Salt Lake City, Utah,
Wasatch Commons balances the traditional advantages of home ownership with the benefits of shared common facilities and ongoing connections with our neighbors. Our community consists of 26 clustered townhouses located on 4.5 beautiful acres near downtown Salt Lake City. The emphasis is on affordability and preserving the environment. Members cooperate to maintain the land and collectively perform the common chores. Most community members own their homes; and a few homes are federally assisted rent-to-own units for low-income families.
