At New View (Acton MA), the car access gets close to the back of almost 1/2
of the units, some of which have garages, some of which have parking next to
their houses. Priority for these sites was given to folks with mobility
impairments. (Otherwise, priority for house site selection was done by
seniority of membership).

There was definite design tension between pedestrian zone & car zone. But we
managed, with the houses in a squiggly oval shape, and the road running
along one of the long sides of the oval, with some parking areas tucked in
the squiggles.
