I'm thinking the private homes could be designed into the community, become
part of it. It sounds like a mix of single family and multi-family homes
(if that's what you're planning for the new units), or rather a mix of lot
development (individually built) and unified (anyone have a standard term
for this?) development (single designer and builder) cohousing. That way
they could be 100% members-- unless they don't want that? It would make
insurance easier for that common-use shop on private property...
