Hi Kristin,Here is the Boston area we have three urban cohousing communities, Cambridge Cohousing, Cornerstone, and us (Jamaica Plain Cohousing). None of could have gotten built without parking, due really to zoning considerations that saleability ones. We really wanted to have no more than one space per household, our abutters were pushing for two per household, and we wound up with 1.5, though this does include guest, handicapped, and loading spots. While there's a very decent amount of street parking available in our neighbor, neither the abutters nor the zoning authorities would let us actually depend on 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?
Kristin, The sample base in cohousing is small, and biased towards rural/suburban, plus a median age of community of more than seven years ago (which means they were planned/approved at least 2-3 years before that), so it may not have the best examples for you. There's been a rapid shift in values and policies in this field in the past decade, but it is uneven. Given that not every community participates on this list, you may not find the info you're looking for here, although I see that the Eastern Village folks have chimed in, and that's the closest example I can think of. <snip>
