Dear Official XXX,

Raising living standards, helping the environment and lowering cost of living suggests a transfer from single family dwellings to stronger units of social community, with shared common facilities. I'd like to know what provisions the state/county/city has for doing this with minimal beuracracy in group-sizes of 30-150 people, which is the optimal size for such a venture.

Sincerely,

XXXX
