Here at Manzanita Village in Prescott AZ we use consensus for every decision except those those requiring a vote of the homeowners as mandated by our CC&Rs. (We're an HOA for the sake of our state recognition.) Only the homeowners can elect the titular board of directors (board mostly rubber stamps decisions made by the community as a whole), raise the HOA dues, revise the CC&Rs and By Laws and levy special assessments. All other decisions are made by the community as a whole including homeowners, renters, and associate members. Voting by the homeowners requires a quorum of 1/3 of the households (not individuals) participating in person or by absentee ballot. The consensus process is divided into 2 forms: what we call simple consensus which only requires that the people in the room consense and full consensus the use a three-view process that is designed to gain the support of the whole community. We're a 15+ year-old community & this is working well for us. Mary Ann -- Let us be grateful to people who make us happy, they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.
