Here's a discussion topic for the list: How do your groups handle revisiting decisions? I'm not talking about those decisions that are made during development and must be held to in order to move forward (site location, design, and so on), but rather the ongoing decisions that arise when living together in commuity. How much time, if any, must pass? Given that, as time goes on, a community's members come and go, eventually the original participatants in a decision are gone, and eventually a decision is open to reconsideration. How much time, though? What has to happen for a concern to be brought up again? What is the process for reintroducing a topic? In a brief search of the archives, I've seen references to an appeal process, implying an established channel for immediately revisiting a decision. What if there is new information, or a new mix of members, such that the conditions of the original decision are no longer the same? Do you have written guidelines for dealing with past decisions? If so, are copies available? Your stories of your experiences are appreciated. -- Marci Malinowycz Puget Ridge Cohousing, Seattle 206-763-2623 SoDance [at] msn.com
