A Washington, D.C., think tank has profiled an Oregon resident-owned community as part of a series of case studies called “Innovations in Preserving Affordable Housing from around the United States.”
Urban Institute detailed the residents’ 2011 purchase of Vida Lea Cooperative, a 34-site ROC in Leaburg, Ore., with the help of CASA of Oregon and other partners. Urban Institute describes the project with this abstract:
The Vida Lea case study features a brief overview of how #cooperatives work and a great photo showing the newly paved streets and new park model home. The report was done as part of the group’s Housing Assistance Matters Initiative. Learn more here, where you can also read the case study five others from across the country.
