To me that "Community" label requires some type of personal interaction with everyone within the community. My idea of ecovillage is a neighborhood that strives for sustainable construction, alternative energy, mixed use as far as % of business to houses, allows gardening and at least chickens. Degrees of interaction dependent on the particular individual and his/her personality requires.
There are probably as many degrees of ecovillages as there are communities.
In the news recently, here in Central Oregon, there was a big tadoo about a woman who put up a clothesline in her backyard. There were restrictions in her particular neighborhood that prohibited any of her neighbors having to look at a clothesline. Not my kind of neighborhood.
 
I just had the craziest dream. This tiny ad was in it.
