Actually, I think the best place to start is more like this order:

* Figure out what it is that you need to do in your community that you
  can't do on current Fedora infrastructure.  We can already provide
  language-specific wiki pages, mailing lists, IRC chat, and a way for
  your contributors to help translate the fedoraproject.org website
  into your language (if we don't already have it).

* If there's something left that you need, it's best to set up (or
  mock up a design of) the site that you want to create before you
  contact the Board.  That way when you do contact the Board, there's
  a visual representation of what you're proposing to build.  That
  helps the Board members offer appropriate guidance for things like
  trademarks, links back to Fedora, and so on.
