Hi, Friends, I asked about this topic last fall for a new cohousing project I’m working on in Maine. In the string of previous emails about this topic (see below), Sheila Braun of Champlain Valley Cohousing mentioned that she’d post a copy of an EPA study of Nyland in Colorado that found that residents made 25% fewer car trips per household than adjacent condos and single-family homes. I haven’t been able to find the study on the website (but I have no idea how to do that!), so I wonder if someone could send me a copy? My email to Sheila was bounced back. And any other info on traffic studies in cohousing would be great. Thanks!

It actually isn't true that they compared the cohousing community against other local communities-rather, they compared it with standards expectations of traffic. It's possible that no built community drives as much as planners expect. Unless anybody objects, I'll post the study to the list so it gets into the archives. But give me a few days to enter it into my computer.
