See http://justcomm.org/jc-faq.htm#Q6.5 -------------------- FORWARDED MESSAGE FOLLOWS -------------------- Re: managing rentals in cohousing This has been an interesting thread I’d be very interested to hear thoughts and experience re the following: - If a community has rental units (meaning members with less money invested and also potentially shorter term stays) how would it make sense to think about managing voting rights and money (and related?). - Might you taper up voting “weight” relative to length of stay, for example, hypothetically, folks might have 1/4 vote the first year(?), 1/2 vote the second, etc? (whether by household or individual) - Would renters have a say (and if so, how much) in long-term infrastructure/building decisions, and would they be required to contribute financially to such? - Are there ways to group different kinds of processes and decisions or financial contributions that would make sense for renters versus owners, or relative to length of stay? - Are there other legal considerations, other than the one mnetioned in the last digest? - Any other things to consider? Thanks very much! I’m an aspiring cohouser (or intentional community)- hoping to create something in a rural-ish location that will also serve as a refuge for people with sensitivities to wireless radiation (cell and router signal). Please feel free to pass my contact info on to anyone you know who is seriously interested in something similar. Meantime, best wishes to all for a happy new year Jaffy Phillips jaffy [at] pobox.com 781-752-9599 (Sent from a Hard-Wired Computer - for our Health)
