Cohousing: Square peg development in a round-hole world

The concept dates to the early days in America: Shared common spaces along with smaller, private family dwellings. Today, cohousing neighborhoods don’t fit easily into typical development regulations. The second podcast in our Talk of the Towns series features Robert Boyer, a UNC Charlotte assistant professor who studies cohousing.

Who we are is a nonprofit, nonpartisan online media project reporting on issues affecting the growth, quality of life and future of the Charlotte region.
