I just joined this mailing list, and I'm glad to see lots of messages flowing! I have been disappointed that there was little active discussion of cohousing on alt.housing.nontrad. I know that the Nyland community (Lafayette, Colorado) has about 15 renters. As I understand it, no units were built to be designated for renters, but many of the townhouses contain a ground-level suite that can be rented out while the owner lives in the upper floors. This arrangement has the advantage of bringing people into the community who can't afford to buy a home, without forcing the investing members to pay for separate rental units. If there's anyone listening from Nyland, perhaps they could say something about how renters participate in the consensus decision making process?
