S1 Episode 6: Clackamas, a ROC on the River in Oregon

In this episode of Ownership Matters, we’re joined by Tom Powers, the Board President at Clackamas River Community Cooperative in Clackamas, Oregon. If this Resident Owned Community sounds familiar, Rana Foroohar, our guest in episode four, talked about her visit to the community as part of research for two articles in the Financial Times. In today’s episode, Tom tells us all about their little slice of heaven on the Clackamas River, providing insight on the decision to purchase back in 2012, improvements the community has made since then, and the challenges the community faced over the last year.
