Are there any co-housing
communities that struggle with the tension around how things look and the different standards held by members? How have other communities resolved issues related to the physical appearance of common areas and areas visible to all?

I can't say we have resolved this issue but we have improved conditions just by talking about them. Doing a round in a community meeting and listening to how everyone feels about this has been very helpful in cleaning the place up a bit. It raises awareness.

At what size does a community meeting become unweildy?

Because religious belief, or non-belief, is such an important part of every person's 
life, freedom of religion affects every individual. State churches that use government 
power to support themselves and force their views on persons of other faiths undermine 
all our civil rights. Moreover, state support of the church tends to make the clergy 
unresponsive to the people and leads to corruption within religion. Erecting the 
"wall of separation between church and state," therefore, is absolutely 
essential in a free society.
