There is also Temescal Commons in Oakland. The two communities: Temescal
Commons and Temescal Creek about about 1/2 mile apart in Oakland. They
both have had big impacts on the neighborhood. There is a decent case
study of the two in our latest book: Creating Cohousing: Building
Sustainable Neighbhorhoods
