Topic: Owning the Future. Converting Manufactured Home Parks to Resident Ownership Cooperatives

Long shunned by communities across the country, manufactured home parks are finally being recognized as an important component of our housing inventory. However, the characteristic of separating home ownership from control of the land below presents unique challenges not just for the resident and landlord, but for the larger community and our economic resiliency across the region.

The meeting included a discussion of the opportunities, challenges, rewards and trade-offs in pursuing resident ownership strategies. The panel of experts lead a dialogue on such topics as: community outreach and resident organization; capacity building; financial structuring; infrastructure assessment & improvement; park management; and, community impacts.
