Park Plaza Cooperative: A resident-owned manufactured home park

The letter came in 2010, telling residents of Fridley's manufactured home park that the owner planned to sell the land they lived on, turning their world upside down.

Where would they go? What would become of their homes?

A week later, another letter. This one from the Northcountry Cooperative Foundation, offering to help residents buy the property—for a whopping $4.3 million.

Residents met and exceeded the challenge, forming Park Plaza Cooperative and building a community that some call “family.”

The Metropolitan Council contributed grants totaling $83,542 toward sanitary sewer repairs and service to nearly 80 homes in the park.
