I have been contacted by someone in WA state that is serving on a steering 
committee to develop a "Comprehensive Plan for the county that will guide land 
use and other elements for the next 20 years.  I want to propose language for 
the plan that will allow for and even encourage intentional communities.  I 
know from my research that dealing with governmental agencies is one of the 
biggest obstacles for developing intentional communities and having a 
methodology in place will help both the county and the groups seeking to create 
these communities in the future.

If you could point to any good examples of how other counties have dealt with 
this in their comprehensive plans or have any other information that would be 
helpful in developing language that would help in this regard it would be much 

Does anyone have any good examples to share- while he says county, I think at 
city level would also work?  It would be helpful to include the jurisdiction, 
state, and any key contacts you know about in your examples.  Please share by 
Tuesday so I can compile my responses for him.
