Jeanne -- I'm a future Honey Creek resident (down the road apiece from
Sunward).  One thing I have considered is car sharing, which I know is
happening right now in many cohousing communities.  I also hope that, as a
considerable critical mass of over 100 units in our tri-community
development, we can wield some clout to have a bus stop put in within
reasonable walking distance from Sunward/Great Oak/Honey Creek.
