Jeffery asked: >I'm working on a general plan committee for the city of Davis, and I'm >curious as to how hard I should push for "Cohousing" zoning or land-use >designations.What have others' experiences been? In the comp master plan for Snohomish County came an idea called Rural Cluster Developments where rural densities could be slightly increased if the housing was clustered and the remaining land was set up as greenbelt. The original bill was modeled after Sharingwood. It is still in hearings, the biggest issues are defining greenbelts (does that include golf courses too?) and how much bonus density for clustering. I testified at the original hearing for this bill and personally called some council members to lobby them. I think if you want to promote cohousing in your area I suggest taking advantage of whatever energy you can find to do this sort of thing. I would also suggest delivering a copy of the Cohousing book to your local planning director and staff. I am pretty sure you can still get a box of 30 of the original cohousing book from the Cohousing Co in Berkeley for $40. I am sending one, gift wrapped to all the County Council, planning dept. folks and the governor of the State next week as Xmas presents. Rob Sandelin Sharingwood and beyond
