Boston Trailer Park Residents Take Ownership

Boston, MA-   CDI congratulates the residents of Boston Trailer Park in
taking ownership of their community!  The purchase culminated a 20+ year
struggle by the residents of Boston’s only manufactured home community to
gain long term security and affordability of their community. The community
was created in 1947 and has just over 100 units, and is located on VFW
Parkway in West Roxbury. The tenant association was incorporated in 1987
and spent much of its early years in litigation with its owners, who saw
other purposes for the land. Their initial battles led to a transitional
ownership by a non-profit, and finally to resident ownership. The purchase
was assisted by the City of Boston, The Boston Redevelopment Authority,
with financing including The Cooperative Fund of New England (CFNE); CDI
has provided business training and has pledged long term support of the
association as a part of it New England Resident Owned Communities (NEROC)
