Craig's statement implies that the definition of "urban" may have been
subjective:

>> In the recent 2008 Cohousing Census, Betsy Morris found this
_self-reported distribution_ (for 109 Cohousing Communities):
>> 40% Urban

However, a common rule of thumb for "urban density" in western Washington is
a minimum of 4 dwelling units per acre:

        "The principle of 4 dwelling units per acre for urban growth is not
to be seen as an inflexible requirement but as a general rule of thumb."
(Western Washington Growth Management Hearings Board)

Four units per acre amounts to a lot size of about 100' X 100' plus streets.
