Raines, unfortunately some of us can't wait until move-in to plan things like car-sharing arrangements--it has to do with the zoning laws. Boston has a requirement for a certain number of parking spaces per vehicle, and unless you can prove that a certain number of people will be car-sharing or taking the T you're not likely to get a variance. We have already arranged to have a Zipcar on the site. The neighborhood association is giving us a very hard time about the number of parking spots, however, so anything we can do to prove we don't need as march parking as they think we do will be extremely helpful.

First, build and move into your community. THEN worry about things like
carsharing, meal sharing, shopping for each other, lending things, doing
social things together, supporting your neighbors... build it gradually
and naturally, don't try to do it all at once. Do reach out to FlexCar or your local car share operator about siting a car in your area or at least
briefing the group and assessing the interest.
