Message author: KJWOLF [at] UCDAVIS.EDU Posted by the COHOUSING-L sysop. One useful technique for "stuckness" on key issues like a site plan is for the group to go back and see if there is serious disagreement on the foundation of decisions that should underlie a site plan decision. What is the groups purpose? What are its goals? What are the goals and objectives for the site? Were these ever prioritized? If there is consensus here, a 2/3rds vote should be reachable (if not consensus itself) on a site plan specific. When all things are weighed in and a consensus still can't be reached, we at N Street have been able to reach consensus to draw straws. --- Kevin Wolf 724 N St Davis, CA 95616 phone and fax: 916-758-4211 On Mon, 18 Jul 1994, Rob Sandelin wrote: > I just responded to a phone call where a local group was deadlocked > over a site design issue and didn't have any ideas on how to break the > deadlock (they use consensus with a 2/3 majority vote - it went to vote > and didn't get 2/3rds majority). > I gave them what little advise I had.
