My friend John Affolter, who has been involved with cooperative housing since before I was born, privately shared this bit of wisdom with me after he had attended a tour I was giving for a bunch of visitors, in which I pointed out all the community in our development: "Community is not about roads, or houses, or mailboxes or architecture of any kind. Community is the relationships between people and their commitment to those relationships". In those terms I know of several places which have lots of community and no architectural enhancements and some places which have lots of architectural enhancements and little community. This connects to all those threads I posted earlier about vision and identifying community goals.
