You should definitely get a detailed sense of the issues involved, and if possible encourage the involved parties to dialog about what might work. If the person with the service dog needs a service animal to detect seizures, for example, then a person will not be able to perform the duties of the service dog. If the service dog is there for mobility, a human replacement might be possible ( although probably less reliable). Some people with mild allergies might be willing to consider taking an antihistamine when they come to the common house; people with more serious allergies or who cannot stand the side effects would not be able to do so. Some poeple might be okay meeting in an outdoor space, but not an indoor space. It may not be possible to accomodate eveyone, but all parties should appreciate a thoughtful attempt.
