Re pets: At Milagro we have the following policy (extract from CC&R’s) "General Restrictions: Each Lot may have a reasonable number of generally-recognized house or yard pets provided that they are not kept bred or maintained for any commercial purpose. No animal may be allowed to become a nuisance. The Board of Directors has the right to determine in its sole and absolute discretion whether a particular animal is a generally-recognized house or yard pet, whether the animal constitute a nuisance, or whether the number of animals kept by a household is reasonable. All animals must be kept under leash or controlled at all times so that they will not interfere with any Owner's use and enjoyment of the Common Areas. It shall be the responsibility of all pet owners to clean up after their pets. At night all pets must be kept in the Dwelling Unit or within the private yard of a Dwelling Unit. The Board of Directors in its absolute discretion may set forth additional pet restrictions in the Association Rules. Livestock: Domestic livestock (including, but not limited to, chickens) are allowed on the Properties only with written prior approval of the Board of Directors and in accordance with any applicable Rules adopted by the Board.” (the Board being all the homeowners) Pets are not allowed in the Common House and I think everyone respects this rule. Leash rules were contentious for our first few years, despite the fact that we are within the city limits and subject to the city’s strict leash laws. The people who most persistently flouted the leash laws experienced some social pressure and eventually moved out, and a few instances of dog-bite (including me) reinforced the necessity of such a law. A few years ago we reached a consensus that the pet-owners should police one another for the good of all, e.g. in ensuring that dogs were leashed and that poop was picked up and that noisy dogs were trained to be quieter, and that seems to work very well. From time to time the idea of an outdoor dog-run has been discussed, but it never got off the ground. We do have a huge area of natural desert where dogs can be walked on leash. Cats are only permitted as indoor pets, and as a result we have abundant wild birds, reptiles and small mammals throughout the community gardens. A number of people who joined with pets (mostly dogs) have not replaced them when they died, and this is apparently common in cohousing. I’d guess that less than half of our households have pets.
