Security measures in cohousing

Hi all!  You can tell Takoma Village is getting down to the wire by
the number of queries I'm posting to the listserv.  We expect to
break ground end of August.

So my question for this email is:  what security systems, if any, do
you have built into your community design?  Alarm systems?
Shutters?  Fences?  Bars on windows and/or doors?

TVC is in a highly urban area w/ all the good and not so good stuff
that implies.

I think what we're trying to design is a system or systems that will
protect us but not imprison us.

Any thoughts?
