There seem to be NO existing cohos built within reach of a city bus
route that are permitted to have really low-cost housing in an
evolving campground style.  Nobody seems to know of any urban/suburban
area that would allow it, anywhere in the US.

Unless some counterexamples appear, I think the claim is solid that
all known urban-ish zoning bans really low-cost housing.
