The NBC Today show did a feature on the top 5 friendliest cities in the country and Davis, California made the list in part due to being the home of cohousing and the first city with a city-wide network of bike paths. The article doesn’t say much about cohousing but the video does.
Davis is where cohousing was founded, where the first young hippies wanted to live in a circle around a community center and love each other and that tone has permeated that whole city and housing market.
Ok so its not the most accurate description of the birth of cohousing in the US but at least its positive.
See the video (Davis starts around 2:45 in)
