There seem to me to be two distinct styles of cohousing, urban and
rural.  The rural style seems a lot more to me like the commune 
concept than the urban groups, who seem more interested in building 
a small-town type of community while remaining close to their place of 
employment and other urban attractions.  The former, I think, are the 
ones really interested in sustainable development.

Do you feel this is a fair picture?  Comments are welcome...
