ruddick [at] edison.cc.oh.us is the author of the message below but due to a problem it was posted by the Fred the list manager: owner-cohousing-L [at] cohousing.org -------------------- FORWARDED MESSAGE FOLLOWS -------------------- I understand M Henner's resrvations about using "community service" hours for enterprises that may be of benefit to a group of individuals but not society in general. I am not certain that those reservations apply to cohousing. While the primary beneficiaries of cohousing are the occupants, I think we could make a case that cohousing as a movement offers considerable potential to improve the conditions of people in general. I am also uncertain if there is such a clear distinction between community-service and total selflessness. How many not-for-profits are run by people with six (or seven!) figure salaries? I think the community service idea could be presented to the court administrators. They are the ones who should decide if a particular cohousing community fits their criteria or not. Service to that part of the community just might be as relevant as service to any other part. TR
