At Kenney Ridge we use consensus as a matter of course. Our bylaws provide that if consensus cannot be reached, we can pass the proposal by a vote at the next meeting (to give time for folks to talk and think about it). For some touchy items, the bylaws require a super-majority vote: To raise assessments: a two-thirds vote To discipline a member: a nine-tenths vote To sell off community property: theoretically impossible! It is recommended that you make it difficult for a majority to sell off your community assets. In the two and a half years I have been in this community, so far we have made all our decisions by consensus -- we have not yet needed to resort to a vote. Oh, and you may have noticed that consensus makes for longer meetings! Get used to delegating problems to committees -- the full group will still have to approve the committee recommendation, but in my experience this takes a lot less time.
