There is always an appeal process, allowing a variance due to "hardship." Of course, that's not a standard especially applicable to cohousing - but a zoning appeals board that is sympathetic to the concept might be able to find the inability to live in an intentional community is a hardship. ("Hardship" can't be strictly financial.) When I lived in the east every town had a zoning board of appeals. In California it seems that the city council handles the zoning appeals.
