Meadow Valley Manufactured Home Park

Meadow Valley Manufactured Home Park is a resident-owned manufactured home park in Unadilla, New York. The park was purchased at a foreclosure auction with financing from ROC USA™ Capital, the finance arm of a non-profit social enterprise that supports resident ownership of manufactured home communities across the country. Now, Meadow Valley residents have an opportunity to buy a membership in Meadow Valley Park, Inc. and become part owners in their community.
