Country Court Community originally opened in 1975 and is now an 11-home, resident-owned manufactured home community.
But that transition didn’t happen overnight. We formed Country Court Community, Inc. and started on the path to resident-ownership in 2018. That’s when, with the help of NeighborWorks Montana and ROC USA, LLC, we purchased and took control of our community on June 30, 2018.
Now, the resident-owned community (ROC) is not only a successful business, but also a thriving neighborhood.
The process of the resident-owned community buying the land beneath our neighborhood brought this community closer together. Not only do we know far more of our neighbors than ever before, but we look out for one another, too. And with no outside landlord to report to, we’re the envy of other nearby manufactured home communities.
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.
