Manzanita Village strategy: We are a new neighborhood in our first fiscal year of operation as a Homeowners' Association. We have 11 occupied houses of the planned 36. Homeowners' dues are 100/month. We struck a deal with the local cable company; all members on cable pay 16/month to the HOA and the treasurer pays the cable company. Laundry is reimbursed to the HOA at $.50 per washer and dryer load, and the guest space fee is $5 per person per night, usually paid by the resident host, but waived for prospective buyers. After a half year of rotating common-house-cleaning duties, we just last night decided to pay a cleaner-person from outside the village to clean twice monthly, and we'll straighten up in between. A previous writer was right: nickel-diming one another is divisive (and annoying to the HOA treasurer, yours truly!) and contrary to the spirit of sharing. Yet, when the asset being used consumes water/electricity, for example, user-funding seems appropriate. Incidentally, we have developed our cohousing village without the involvement of a developer. We will be participating in a breakout session on that topic in Berkeley.
