Northwood Community originally opened in 1977 and is now a 44-home, resident-owned manufactured home community.
But that transition didn’t happen overnight. We formed the Northwood Community, Inc. and started on the path to resident-ownership in 2014. That’s when, with the help of NeighborWorks Montana and ROC USA, LLC, we purchased and took control of our community on Nov. 5, 2014.
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.
Northwood is a well-established community for people who enjoy a welcoming neighborhood in an ideal location.
Ask anyone who lives in Northwood, and we’re sure they’ll tell you it’s a little slice of heaven.
