hear, hear. Besides site design, my perception is that social engineering
seems to creep in in other aspects of cohousing/community development. How do
folks feel about *social engineering* to fit the textbook definition of
"cohousing," rather than *spontaneous* community development that defines a
community of cohousers? Would a mission statement for the community be a
better tool in which to define the community than a set of
rules/regs/policies? Are there any anecdotes?
