Hi, I'm a graduate student at University of Washington School of Public Affairs. I'm in a policy class, and a group of us are looking at issues of housing and low-income affordability. I, in particular, am looking at cohousing as an option for the city to get more behind in terms of low-income housing development. I know many cohousing groups seek diversity of all kinds, including income diversity, but I'm wondering how well you feel it works, and how city incentives to create affordable housing as part of the cohousing unit help or inhibit its creation. I'm also wondering how those who are part of the cohousing movement in general feel about the ability of cohousing to address issues of availability of low-income housing options, especially in cities such as Seattle in which real estate prices have increased to the point where it is difficult to maintain affordable housing. Hope you don't mind me posting to this email list. I would love any input anyone has on this matter. Thanks for your time Liz Rice
