This is an issue that we took up during the programming of our site.  Some 
people *really* wanted to be as close as possible to the common house, 
while others *really* wanted to be as far away from it as possible.  We 
took this into consideration when designing the site plan, and the common 
house did not end up right in the middle of the community, but near enough 
to those who wanted to be close to it, and far enough away from those who 
wanted some distance.
