I think it's entirely possible--even desirable--to question the cohousing
creed! What's the PURPOSE of cohousing anyhow? It's to live your life in a
more sane and humanistic way...sharing the burdens, the joys, the hope, the
fears, etcetera etcetera etcera...NOT to become professional housing
developers.

I like your start on the potential rewording of the "creed"...maybe "Future
residents have major input into the site planning" would be good
too...anything to take the wording away from "design of homes"...makes it
sound too much like a custom-home community (yecchhh!)
