Thanks for all that, Oz! Really appreciate understanding where you're coming
from and how the priorities have shifted.

One thing I'd like to know about: I thought that the fair housing laws which
govern affordable housing practices made restrictions on residents (such as
you "must be want to live and participate in cohousing") impossible. I
thought that requirements for participation in cohousing were incompatible
with publicly-funded (or even privately-funded) housing developments. How is
this being handled? Or maybe I have some part of the story wrong, not sure. 

Best regards,
