The design of the community facilities goes on and on and on. Trust me. 
Needs change. Things fall apart. A building is never done.
Never worry about not enough decisions to be made--------Sharon

Like they said. More than 25 years in, we still have plenty to do. Budget 
priorities, legalities, policy evolution as kids become teens, dealing with the 
labor aspect as more members age out of hard physical work, planning meetings 
and social life, maintenance and repairs, resales, orienting and integrating 
new members, working on our skills at decision making. Never a dull moment!
