As our name implies, we are currently organized as a Limited Liability Corporation.  Once we move in, we will likely change our structure to that of a condominium or Home Owners Association.

Following the usual practice for cohousing communities, we have decided that key decisions will be made by consensus. Consensus is a formal group process that focuses on bringing everyone’s concern to the table and typically results in decisions with a much higher degree of buy-in than the more common 50-percent-plus-one method of decision-making. We participated in a consensus workshop in 2018 and have adapted that process to our needs.

Governance

We have also instituted a committee structure that supports the many tasks we will have to accomplish to move this project forward. Our standing committees currently include:

  • Membership Committee

  • Administrative/Finance Committee

  • Marketing Committee

  • Site Selection Committee

As we move forward, more work groups and committees will be created - every member has the opportunity to participate and have an impact for CGB!
