Subject: [C-L]_ Inquiry about Possible Policies on Renters

I am a member of a committee at Bellingham (WA) cohousing gathering
information about rental policies.  The question for study is whether  
or not Bellingham cohousing wants to consider a policy that places   
limits on the number/percentage of homes that are not occupied by the  
owner and are rented out.    We would be very grateful for any  
information from cohousing communities that have considered this question;
what the considerations were; and whether or not the  
community adopted a policy or rule.   If you have adopted such a  
policy we would be very grateful to learn  what the policy is and/or to get
a copy of the policy.

Thanks much for any information anyone can provide.
