A common phrase in commerce is that business is all about relationships. On the residential end, a sense of community is also all about relationships. The CoolTown process relies on building such relationships from planning to reality, and the key to success its fostering constant conversation.
In the CoolTown planning phase, these conversations are facilitated through support groups. That is, people who share a common cause, often dealing with a common problem. There’s a resulting sense of bonding among the participants as they dialogue with one another to overcome their common problem and achieve their individual goals.
CoolTown business-oriented support groups are referred to as guilds, while social-oriented support groups are referred to as circles.
