EcoVillage Charlottesville Plans Advance

Fred Oesch, cofounder of Openworld Villages, has been invited to join the board of directors of EcoVillage Charlottesville, a nonprofit group developing a 6.5 acre, mixed use site.

Oesch will have a principal role in preparing physical development guidelines, dwelling unit design, master site planning, and costings for the privately-funded project, which aims to create a replicable model for intentional communities.

Openworld Villages President/CEO Mark Frazier also has been invited to advise on inclusive ownership and financing structures for the community.
