It’s been less than a year since Park Plaza manufactured-home community became one of the first few cooperatives of its kind in the state, but members are working hard to make the place that they live—and own—a better place.

Board of Directors President Natividad Seefeld, who last February was one of the board members to sign papers to buy the manufactured-home community, has been instrumental throughout the process, and now is at the lead as the board continues to make changes to better for their community.
