Hi everybody!
Remember a couple of months ago when I wrote in about my adventures in
being invited to attend the Roxbury Master Plan Workshop as a consultant?
Well, the Boston Redevelopment Authority actually wrote up cohousing in the
"Quality of Life" workshop notes and they came up with the following
definition:

"Cohousing is an approach to designing and building housing in a form that
is organized physically and socially to foster communication and
cooperation among its residents."

Just thought I'd throw that out there and see if people agree with it or
not. Any comments?
