At Kenney Ridge we have a fallback procedure (two meetings without consensus, third meeting 75% vote) which has been used exactly once, in our first few months of operations, when a stubborn member dug in her heels on an issue. Since then we've all learned that a lot more give and take is necessary to maintain a caring community. (Although we still value that member's stubborness, especially when she is doing battle with local toxic polluters!) Consensus is a very idealistic procedure which 9 out of 10 people will tell you cannot possibly work. It slows us down for sure, but it's invaluable for building community.
