With respect, Rob, I don't think there is a comparison here at all. Common ground was placed in an area where people were desperate for housing, and signed on without ever actually building community. I hardly think RoseWind is in the same category. They are just talking about making *some* units affordable. I don't think that people who work to build their own house are going to be going off skiing instead of attending the general meetings.
