RoseWind Cohousing, a lot-development model, has no mechanism for removal. I don't know how we could, or why we would. Most people would like to know that their investment of their life savings etc in their home means that it is theirs, and that no one can decide they don't want them there. Our legal documents give us ways to cope with a malicious or mentally incompetent decision blocker, with our fallback voting system (which we hope never to have to use), and with the association's legal rights to put liens on property, for example, for money owed the association, or to revoke certain privileges of commons use in the event of major problems. Membership is intrinsic with the deed to the lot, and obligates the owner in legal ways, with, as I said, legal recourse possible if they refuse. The main thing that operates is self selection, and self deselection. If a person gets no satisfaction from living in the community, there are many other options available to most people, and they can move. Lynn Nadeau
