Limitation of number of renters question

I am a member of a 19-unit, 3 year-old cohousing community of older adults in 
Mountain View California and am chairing a task force looking at developing a 
rental policy. There is sentiment among our members to apply a limit of 3 units 
rented out of the 19 at any one time. There is concern about what effect a 
larger number of rented units might have on the functioning of our community. I 
worry that limit might be overly restrictive but would like to hear if other 
cohousing communities have experience with a similar policy. If this limitation 
is in the main stream my concerns would be alleviated to a great degree. 
I searched this list and found only one example posted in 2016 from Ashland 
Cohousing Community of a limit of 2 renters in a community of 13 households. Do 
the rest of you belong to communities with rental limits? How many units 
compared to your total?
Thank you in advance for sharing your perspectives.
