CH elevators

We have designed 20 or so common houses, almost all without elevators.
Several of these common houses were for groups where several people in the
group were in wheelchairs.  Like everything else in cohousing, to be done
right it has to be a thorough and deliberate process. And ofcourse in the
end the group should do exactly what the group wants to do -- not what
someone else thinks they should do. There is a great deal of wisdom and
justice in their decision if every rock is turned over and examined -- the
group usually does the right thing. Yet it is amazing to see how often a
miss administered and naively adopted rule can end up costing a group 20k.
The right thig is doable, but not anecdotely.
