It’s a different person depending on the issue. Someone just does it. Sometimes I ask a person I know is friends with the person to speak to them privately. Some times people will go to a team and say, for example, "I think the clutter outside doors is getting out of hand. Do you think it is a good idea if I just talk to people about it.” Then she went around and spoke to each person and explained the problem. One person took several talks, another never quite agreed on what was reasonable. But on the whole it works. No policy or big deal. Governance includes enforcing the governance agreements. Since cohousing started as a DIY project, however, it is built on an altruistic idea that left to themselves, people do the right thing. And even do it better without “condo commandos.” It’s one of those ideas that is super liberal and super conservative at the same time. Get government out. Live free.
