Animas View

A resident-owned community

 

Welcome Home!

Animas View MHP Cooperative, Inc., is a resident-owned manufactured home community in Durango, CO. Animas View is conveniently located just three miles from downtown Durango and The Durango and Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad. Our ideal setting allows for easy access to the city trolley, and we can be at the grocery store in under five minutes. There are a variety of restaurants within a mile from AVMHP and the Durango Library is just two miles away.

We are a friendly neighborhood for people who love outdoor activities and living in a small mountain town. On a clear day, which is almost every day, the mountain views are spectacular. We have unlimited trails for hiking, biking and camping within 30 miles of our neighborhood and The Animas River Trail winds along the Animas River and ends just north of Animas View.

Animas View is owned by the Community Members who live here – we are a resident-owned community (ROC).

We own it

The Member homeowners of Animas View control the rent and make the rules. On June 21, 2021, the ROC purchased the land and infrastructure, such as the roads and water lines. Now, a democratically elected Board of Directors manages the business of running Animas View MHP Cooperative, Inc. Every Member household in the community has a say in who sits on the Board, how we spend our money, the annual budget, and whether we make changes to the rent.

We’re also part of a national network of more than 250 ROCs just like us. That membership provides us with access to expert coaching on how to run our ROC, leadership development and training, communication with dozens of community leaders who face many of the same issues we do, and more. Life in Animas View is truly different than in a commercially owned community – we invite you to find out firsthand how that difference makes living here so much better.
