But where will it be?
How will Atangard Future succeed?
The same way Atangard was first created: Community
Atangard celebrated ten years in September 2019, and intends to celebrate tens more, though in a new home.
In early 2018, the 92 year old Fraser Valley Inn building posted a redevelopment proposal, signifying the setting sun. But this is an exciting prospect:
Atangard can grow.
This community was built on what was available with incredible ingenuity and vision. We’re ready to move into a space that better accommodates our needs.
We love our home, but look forward to reliable heat, hot water, and a roof that doesn’t leak, among many other upgrades we really need.
Believing in what we do, we want to explore the possibility of new projects, multiple sites, with a unique mission for each — though all under the same vision that build this.
Atangard will be nothing if not an intentional community that values relationship and hospitality.
But the form through which that happens will evolve.
Like so many, we see much of where the broader society is failing: combating loneliness, providing affordable housing, environmentally sustainable living; all part of the original Atangard vision. But rather than frustration, we see ourselves as being equipped to do something about it. Multi-generational living? Tiny home villages?
Atangard is a model that has the capacity to scale.
We have a killer model but lack funds.
