Dear Jane:

I was interested to read your post about community meetings. I was also 
interested because our communities are at similar phases at present. We just 
ground on our site work and plan to begin vertical construction in August. 
Hopefully by December we will have 6 families living at the site and another 
families who own lots.

We meet as a general membership once a month. We do most of our discussion 
and decision making at the committee level. Major decisions as brought to the 
general membership as a recommendation by the committee. I find that committee 
participation is a great way to team build and create connections that will 
carry forward until we are all living together.  Committees also allow members 
with specific interests to participate in that aspect of the community. Members 
can focus there energy input and still enjoy the experiene of working as a 
part of a team.

Hope this helps some. Feel free to contact me to discuss issues that may 
related to our "sprouting communities."
