This is the typical structure. Do you have a homeowners or future homeowners 
members group? That group should begin taking the lead on the social and 
governance design as well as the design of the facilities. 

In addition to the books posted, there is a ton of information on the website.

I think the confusion is that you seem to have no experience with cohousing or 
how groups form themselves. It’s hard to place your questions in context. What 
is your role?
