Goals also need to be prioritized. Are safety goals more important than ecological ones? Is an affordable goal more important than a kids goal? It will be difficult but not impossible to agree on the top 3-6 primary goals of the community that never used priority goals as a screen for who moved in. With such a list and some guiding principles, a community can gain the foundation needed for consensus. It is always easier to have these agreed upon at the beginning than after members have bought their units.
