I know of some co-housing communities where this is the case. In one
co-housing development in Denver (was on the Greenbuild tour in 2006),
there were a couple of spaces for a car-share car, and a very few spaces
for owned cars. If you wanted a parking space, you paid extra for
that. I think this was just in the multi-story building, though....I
think all of the individual dwellings had garages.
In most American cities (particularly out here in the vast midwest), we
don't have the infrastructure to support car-free living. Which comes
first--the chicken or the egg?
