Royal Crest Mobile Home Park originally opened in 1969 and is now a 154-site, 55 and older resident-owned manufactured home community.
But that transition didn’t happen overnight. We formed the Royal Crest Residents Association, Inc., and started on the path to resident-ownership in 2022. That’s when, with the help of Cooperative Development Institute and ROC USA, LLC, we purchased and took control of our community on July 28, 2022.
Now, the resident-owned community (ROC) is not only a successful business, but also a thriving neighborhood.
Our Member households elect our Board of Directors, which works with a property management firm and also appoints various volunteer committees to help with special projects, celebrations, community improvements and more. The Board submits a budget every year, and the entire Membership votes on it and any changes to the rent before the budget becomes official. We’re running the business that is our community on our terms, by our rules, for the betterment of ourselves and our neighbors.
Royal Crest is a well-established community for people who enjoy a welcoming neighborhood in an ideal location.
Ask anyone who lives in Royal Crest, and we’re sure they’ll tell you it’s a little slice of heaven.
