Carol, At Jackson Place Cohousing, in urban Seattle, Washington State, all residents can vote on all decisions that are brought to community business meetings, except those involving finances. Jackson Place Cohousing is legally organized as a condominium, so our financial decisions have to be made by the votes of homeowners. Each owned unit has one vote. If there are two or more owners for one home, they must decide among themselves before casting their one vote for the financial decision. This is specified in our basic legal documents and follows state law. There are some decisions that are not made at community business meetings, but left to our various teams, such as our landscape team, our operations/facilities maintenance team, our kitchen team, etc. But if anyone living here, including a renter, has concerns about any decisions that are being made by the teams, those concerns can be brought to a community business meeting where they can be discussed and possibly reversed.

Do most communities do one household one vote or are there other ways ? I’m just doing some research thanks, Carol Emerson Commons Virginia _________________________________________________________________ Cohousing-L mailing list -- Unsubscribe, archives and other info at: http://L.cohousing.org/info
