I'm currently looking for a group to become involved in.  Of the three
groups I know of in the Austin area, one of them is would be at least an
hour commute (San Marcos) which I'm not willing to do, another is planning
on  building high-density housing in the middle of surburbia which seems
really repugnant to me and the third group doesn't look like it is going
to actually move forward, they are too comfortable where they are.

will tell you what *I* want out of cohousing.
