Hmm, so it looks like you have 8 renters out of 62 total residents (includes everyone) at Jackson Place. That's about 13%. Here at Takoma Village we have about 9 renters (renting either rooms or whole units) out of about 70 residents* also about 13%. So that's quite a bit above 5%. We have 43 units. I wonder if our communities are average, or if we are anomalies. Anna Amato Takoma Village Washington, DC *does not include the 27 cats, 2 dogs and a hamster (who is a new resident).

Of course one way to create lower cost housing is to create rental opportunities within cohousing. I wonder, how many such "person/units" of rental opportunity exist in built cohousing today? From experience, but without actual data, I would guess we have less than 5% rental opportunities. What do you think? Is this about on track? Here at Jackson Place Cohousing, we have 62 people, including 40 adults and 12 children. There are 27 homes owned. One is owned by a nonprofit organization that cares for the developmentally delayed, and 3 unrelated developmentally delayed men live in that three-bedroom home as renters. All of the other homes are occupied by owners families. We also have 4 adults, including 1 mother with 1 child, renting rooms in 3 separate homes. All of these rooms have separate bathrooms and entrances. One has a small separate kitchen.
