The scoop on parking at New View (Acton MA):

We had a number of households who really wanted drive-up parking. There 
were a variety of reasons, but most of these households are one or more 
of: older, disabled, with multiple kids, or used to and comfortable with 
drive up parking.

Our site is on a hill that has a steep section in the middle. Our main 
driveway snakes up one side of the hill, and drains into parking lots 
near the top and bottom of the hill. Houses at that side of the hill 
have drive-up parking: this is about 1/2 of our houses.

The houses are arranged, roughly speaking, in 4 clusters. In all but one 
of these clusters, the area in the middle of the clusters is carfree, 
and the area between the clusters is car free, so that there is a big 
pedestrian area for informal socializing, kids play, etc. 

The houses that are farther 

Sometimes I call us New View carhousing, because of all the time we 
spent thinking about cars.
