Tamarack Knoll Community

Fairbanks, Alaska

Community image

Tamarack Knoll is a rural cohousing community eight miles west of Fairbanks and two miles from the University of Alaska. We have nine resident adults and four children. The individual cabins/small homes are privately owned, and the land, commons building, and improvements are held in common through a nonprofit corporation / condominium legal structure.

We share evening meals, and have a water source at a commons building (shower, bath, washing machine, and communal kitchen). Our community is very rural, though not remote, in the boreal forest. We have gravel driveway access to the commons building, and foot trails to the individual units. We keep about 95 percent of our 80 acres in green space. We are on an extensive network of multiple-use ski and dogsledding trails.

We have some ongoing construction, but the community has been functioning since 2004. A number of us are involved in research through the University of Alaska, Fairbanks; and several of us are in public service. We are active in environmental organizations, conservation, and wilderness preservation. We are very engaged in outdoor and wilderness activities.
