Crystal and Mira, we are grappling with exactly the same questions in Richmond. 
The racially-based socioeconomic divide sounds similar to that of large cities 
in other parts of the US and like that in most cities of any size in the 
Southeast. I wonder if all of us in the Southeast are bumping into this 
particular version of the inclusion question.

Greetings from Charlotte! I am reminded that you can't talk about housing
without talking about race. Maybe cohousing isn't the place for social
justice, but I think this movement for real community can do more than one
thing at once. Below is a short article about housing in Charlotte.

Our cohousing group was looking at the University City area for land--the
same area where Keith Scott was murdered. This area is considered "up and
coming" because land prices are low (read: minority population) but a new
light rail line is being built. If this is not an opportunity for
inclusion, I don't know what is.
