Our Agreements, Guidelines, and Resources allow us to clearly communicate amongst ourselves how we intend to live together in community. We realize that other cohousing groups sometimes model their agreements on Heartwood's and we welcome that sharing. We have built our community with the support and wisdom of those who have gone before us and we strive to pay it forward.

As a legal subdivision, our Homeowners Association (HOA) has Covenants, Codes, and Restrictions (covenants), which are the legal document that governs our neighborhood. In practice, we rarely refer to our covenants. They serve as a legal backup if we need them, but for our everyday life, we rely on our community agreements, which we create through our community decision making process.
