Gail, I'm glad to know of your community's explorations of affordability in
housing! There are several communities who are being creative in affordable
options. Burlington Cohousing East Village in Vermont has a minimum percent
of rentals (as opposed to the more common maximum percent) as part of their
commitment to affordability and diversity.

You may want to access this report, created by Flower City Cohousing last
Flower City Cohousing Community Affordability Report – 4-20-16

Also, take a look at these resources on cohousing.or under our
"Affordability" tag:
