Hello kind people,

As I understand it, many cohousing communities have been developed in 
transitional urban or suburban neighborhoods, or in urban or suburban 
neighborhoods that are charictarized by factors such as higher crime, lower 
income, racially/ethnically diverse populations, etc.  I am interested in 
collecting data on the number of cohousing communities in this kind of 
neighborhood (as opposed to an affluent neighborhood or rural area), and am 
specifically interested to know how many in this situation have chosen to put 
up a security gate around their community.   If folks wouldn't mind sending me 
(off-list, and I can summarize if there's interest) information about their 
communities in this regard, or any other relevant stories about discussions, 
issues, etc. you've had in your communities related to this topic, I would be 
grateful.  Also if anyone knows where information like this has been collected, 
this info would also be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance,
