The Takesa Village Story

Takesa Village Homeowners Cooperative originally opened in 1969 and is now a 216-home, resident owned manufactured home community.

But that transition didn’t happen overnight. We formed the Takesa Village Homeowners Cooperative and started on the path to resident ownership in 2015. That’s when, with the help of ROC Northwest and ROC USA, LLC, we purchased and took control of our community on May 2, 2016.

Now, the resident owned community (ROC) is not only a successful business but also a thriving neighborhood.

The process of the resident-owned community buying the land beneath our neighborhood brought this community closer together. Not only do we know far more of our neighbors than ever before, but we look out for one another, too. And with no outside landlord to report to, we’re the envy of other nearby manufactured home communities.

Our Member households elect our Board of Directors, which works with a property management firm and also appoints various volunteer committees to help with special projects, celebrations, community improvements and more. The Board submits a budget every year, and the entire Membership votes on it and any changes to the rent before the budget becomes official. We’re running the business that is our community on our terms, by our rules, for the betterment of ourselves and our neighbors.

Just 20 minutes north of Spokane, Wash., we couldn’t be better situated with easy access to all the city has to offer. Known for its financial, retail and cultural opportunities, Spokane is a hub of activity. Takesa Village is less than 30 minutes from Riverside State Park and the Spokane River.

The 55 miles of trails and 200,000 feet of shoreline at Riverside State Park make it a local favorite for biking and hiking in the summer, and cross-country skiing and snowmobiling in the winter. Endless outdoor adventures are less than an hour’s drive away in the ColvilleCoeur d’Alene, and St. Joe’s National Forests. The Cat Tales Zoological Park, a favorite for viewing big cats and rescued wildlife, is four miles from Takesa Village.

With Gonzaga and Whitworth universities, as well as Spokane and Spokane Falls Community colleges nearby, you can easily pursue higher education, or just take a class, close to home. Just moments from Highway 2 and Route 395, we enjoy our suburban location that allows us to be in Spokane quickly and live in a friendly neighborhood, complete with pools and a community center.

Takesa Village is a well-established community for people who enjoy a welcoming neighborhood in an ideal location.

Ask anyone who lives in Takesa Village, and we’re sure they’ll tell you it’s a little slice of heaven.
