Current Mosaic representative on the Sawyer Hill Board of Trustees
Mosaic Commons is set up as a condominium and governed by our Condo Documents, below. All homeowners are part of our homeowner's association, Mosaic Commons Condominium Trust. Unlike a traditional condominium, we are a cohousing community. Residents and owners are therefore active participants in managing our community. Mosaic Commons cohousing makes decisions by consensus at monthly meetings, and on our community mailing list.

In the absence of any such notice of designation, the Trustees may designate any one such owner for such purposes.
