I can't offer specific advice on your situation, Sharon, but your problems highlight the fact that for developing communities, it would be good to agree during the planning / design process, what the overall environmental /visual/philosophical concept is that you are striving toward, and put in writing as a set of 'design guidelines' for the initial designs as well as for future modifications / enhancements to the development.

It makes a difference when you neighbor's offensive object is 40 feet or 4 feet away.Thanks, Sharon ----- Sharon Villines Takoma Village Cohousing, Washington DC http://www.takomavillage.org _________________________________________________________________Cohousing-L mailing list -- Unsubscribe, archives and other info at: http://www.cohousing.org/cohousing-L/_________________________________________________________________Cohousing-L mailing list -- Unsubscribe, archives and other info at: http://www.cohousing.org/cohousing-L/
