At Tierra Nueva, our policy is that a committee can spend up to $100 of it's budgeted money without group input. Anything higher goes to the group. The orchard and landscape committee had the money in its budgets for the chipper, but it was originally earmarked for something else, so they brought it to the group for approval. >I hope we will have a landscape or environmental committee with a budget to decide if we need a > chipper, and an architectural committee to decide what kinds and how many signs we want, and so forth. Use of the common house seems like a community issue, but the other stuff seems administrative. The reason the sign issue came up at the meeting was to garner group approval and therefore support for the suggested change, instead of it coming from the "top" down as a decree. Yeah, it seems petty, but the discussion was helpful in that it got everyone on board to try out the new idea. >Maybe it's a > reflection of > how calm things are at Tierra Nueva that you take decisions of this > level to > the entire group. I think that's true. It's kind of a relief compared to the rigors of construction, marketing and move-in. There are always personality issues, however, which come up regularly. The hard work of relationships. Life-long. Patty Mara Gourley Tierra Nueva, cen. CA coast mmmm. ________________________________________________________________ GET INTERNET ACCESS FROM JUNO!
