Or sort of bit by bit the place starts looking like what Lynn describes at Rosewind? And again, Lot development is totally different from attached buildings and apartments. One person's treasure is another person's trash. This sounds like a wonderful opportunity for the residents to get to know one another better. This kind of situation could be divisive if not treated in a respectful and mature way. Gossiping about what offends begins to drawn lines in the sand. Intuitively I would recommend a workshop, perhaps on communication as opposed to restriction of expression. Now I'm not a total pollyanna, and I do know that some will always cross the line of decency and it's these minority for whom we write and re-write volumes of rules. Perhaps it would be easier for the group to find a creative way of approaching the offender with concerns including a firm resolve of what will be the consequence of ig-norance. "Beige" is great for resale of property according to a real estate friend of mine but she also includes as an afterthought that it is no way to live. Nor is, what we call in Florida, having to live under the eye of "condo commandos." Co-housing for me is about having fun for the rest of my life with people that I grow to love and appreciate and respect. That includes being willing to hear out an opposing view. Have you noticed that the older you get the faster the years go by? I have. Trust me, there are significantly more important issues to attend to that will enhance the quality of life in your community, bringing people together, rather than limiting expression. Get together, dance for a few hours and then sit down and discuss the issues. Have fun, life's short. Dana Excited soon to be resident of Sharingwood
