"A most interesting and enjoyable discussion. I have several things to add this morning. First let me say that my earlier post emphasized the negative aspects of profit too much. It is not profit per say that is a problem since profit is just a…"

Hi Ethan,
Thanks for your response. Sounds like you are heading off for a wonderful adventure. I will contact Klara, but as I am not a homeowner at this time, I don't think that there is much I can do re: the guidelines/covenants. But perhaps gathering together a group of people interested in sustainability can help move things toward getting the support needed to make those changes.
Best wishes,
Emily

Hi Ethan,
I am new to Sudden Valley, and am trying to connect with other TW people out here. Is there an ongoing conversation about how to move things in a sustainable direction out here? Would you be interested in participating in one?

Hi Ethan! Wecome! We live in similiar watersheds, although I'm further upstream NW from the lake than you. I wonder if we met at the 'Walk Your Walk' event?
I remember a few folks from Sudden Vally being present there. Thanks for starting another economics discussion on our site! Hope to meet you & your wife at one of the community events or work projects!
