Harbor Village Cooperative (HVC) is a resident-owned-community (ROC) on the coast in beautiful Newport, Oregon. We are a large community with 201 lots, with both mobile homes and RVs.
We are nestled in a forest like setting just across from the Yaquina Bay. We are within walking distance to the Historic Bayfront which consists of locally owned restaurants and shops as well as commercial and sports fishing.
In December 2020 when the park's previous owner listed the park for sale, the residents banded together and created a committee which temporarily halted the sale. This led to the forming of a non-profit Cooperative, finalized in Spring 2021. On May 27, 2021 we finalized the park sale with a bridge loan and moved forward with a community elected Board of Directors who now manage the daily business of the Harbor Village Cooperative. Every Member household in the community has a say, a vote in who serves on the Board, how we spend funds, an annual budget, and ultimately monthly rent increases (or decreases).
The HV Co-op is part of a national network of more than 300 Resident Owned Communities (ROC's). Our membership provides us with access to expert support, exposure to guidance on how to run our ROC, leadership development, training and communication with dozens of community leaders in other Coop's who face similar hurdles and issues.
Living in the Harbor Village Community as a Co-op is vastly different than a commercially owned community. We invite you to discover how this difference makes living in the HVC a more affordable, stable and better existence.
Together, we determine our future.
Together we control the rent and make the rules.
