I like the idea of keeping a tight group of property owners who wish to discuss issues facing us. If people interested in ownership in that area wish to join, then I they are welcome, but the discussion goals should remain. If the discussion becomes cantankerous or misdirected due to such individuals, then we will lock it down to property owners only. We won't be filtering ideas so much as keeping the forum focused.
I'm not as interested in having others involved in any way. Sorry.
Regarding hosting the group here, Google allows us to host files and page content as well that would be useful to land owners. Marty's board doesn't really provide us such functionality. For now we'll use Google Groups. If that turns out not to be the best avenue, then that's fine too.
