Hello Fellow Co-housers,
I am a member of Oak Creek Commons Co-housing, located in Paso Robles, CA.  We 
are 31 condo and 5 single family units with 10+ acres of open space.  
We would like to understand how other condo co-housing communities rectify the 
legalities of managing the community with co-housing principles, i.e. HOA 
boards, CC&Rs versus the community process.  For instance, do you change the 
CC&Rs to reflect the community philosophy, values and decision-making process?  
Also, what requirements do you have on people buying into the community as far 
as following the co-housing agreements?  Are these agreements built into the 
legal/sales documents?
Decisions about managing and enhancing our community are made by consensus/vote 
of the whole community.  We have an HOA board which operates with the 
community's agreement.  
I would appreciate any advice/referrals you can give us on this topic.
Yours in community,
Rosalie Wolff

Paso Robles, CA 93446
