In your situation I would figure out some ways to have non-meeting social
gathering times. Given your lot design model, you will be well served to
build some strong glue that will hold you together. Maybe find some ways to
do some work parties to help each other move, or other ways you can serve
each other.  Host a monthly birthday celebration, have some rituals as land
is cleared, whatever makes sense for your group. Maybe some good old fashion
barbeques or campfires.  As a community you want to move from being
strangers to being people who care and love each other. To get there, you
need ways to serve each other and build up a reservoir of trust, which will
make a solid foundation when issues come up that are divisive.
