I also heard of a forming community being advised to have their meetings on the weekend and to provide child care (as opposed to weeknight evenings without child care) as a way of increasing the interest/attendance of parents.

River Song Cohousing in Eugene, OR is seeking input from communities that have reserved units for families.

I don't think there is any way to do this legally even though some people may do it. Discouraging a household with children from moving in is definitely illegal.

The advice on the list for years has been if you want more children in the community, build things to attract them -- or that their caregivers believe will attract them. Play areas indoors and outdoors. Game rooms, balls, badminton, etc.
