 Hi -

Eastern Village Cohousing in Silver Spring, Maryland, does not have parking.? 
Residents do without cars, park them on the street, or pay for a permit to park 
them in the county garage behind EVC.? We may have lost a few possible buyers, 
but I don't think parking is much of an issue in selling units.? Certainly 
doesn't seem to affect their value.

We are walking distance to the Silver Spring Metro station and a bunch of bus

Hello, I am with Daybreak Cohousing, in Portland, Oregon.
We are building 30 units near mass transit and therefore aren't required to
provide parking. The community chose to maximize green space on our lot
rather than provide parking, so that is what we are doing.

However, for our appraiser, it would be helpful to provide a precedence for
this. Does anyone know of any urban communities without any on-site parking
(we have street parking available). If so, were there any problems selling
the units due to this?
