And realistically that is how it sometimes has to be. Usually the reason that 
drives a community to revise a process is already broken. It’s hard to set 
bones straight without moving them around a bit.

Not all decisions are clear or easy. The value of cohousing rests on its 
willingness to take on the process anyway.

And another reason to take your governance and decision-making structure 
seriously from the beginning.
