Rural Finalist: Woodstock Commons

Woodstock Commons is the first new affordable housing community to open in Woodstock, N.Y., in 30 years.

Woodstock Commons has created a new community for seniors, families, and artists to interact. "It has ended my isolation," says resident Avigayil Landsman.

To live in one of a dozen apartments reserved for artists, a potential resident must be actively pursuing his or her art in the eyes of a review committee made up of local artists.

The town of Woodstock had commissioned a comprehensive plan that identified the site that eventually became Woodstock Commons as a potential location for affordable housing.
