In reading through all the threads my impression is that this proposal is just another self reliant community notion. Not to sound dismissive, but you
can check the FIC Reachboard and find dozens just like it. In my
understanding from the posts, There has been no land identified or
purchased, no development plan created etc. If I understand it, This is very early idea phase, and without being too harsh, the reality is, most plans like this crash. So frankly rather than worrying about setting up filters to keep the wrong people out, I would worry about finding enough core members and financial support to keep it going to the point you can actually start
dealing in the difficult realities of actual community development.
