Bill- It is my understanding that Muir Commons in Davis was developed in
this manner. The developer of a subdivision was informed by the (city
council?) that she needed an affordable housing component. A cohousing
group already existed, saw the opportunity and they linked up. After
development, the cohocom stood on its own as Muir Commons.
