The Meadowbrook Homeowners Association Story


Meadowbrook Park originally opened in 1970 and is now a 193-home, resident-owned manufactured home community for people over the age of 55.

But that transition didn’t happen overnight. We formed the Meadowbrook Homeowners Association, Inc. and started on the path to resident-ownership in 2018. That’s when, with the help of Cooperative Development Institute and ROC USA, LLC, we purchased and took control of our community on November 14, 2018.

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.

Meadowbrook Homeowners Association is a well-established community in Hudson, Mass., for people over the age of 55 who enjoy living in a friendly neighborhood. Our Members take pride in our well-maintained community and enjoy cookouts and holiday parties.

As a 55 and over neighborhood, we enjoy amenities not found everywhere – our driveways are plowed in the winter, lawns are mowed for us, and we have trash pickup at our homes. Within 15 minutes we have access to every imaginable activity, including the well known Charter Oaks Golf Course with an olympic-size swimming pool, ponds for ice skating, a roller skating rink on the edge of our community, restaurants, apple orchards, downtown Hudson, large malls and movie theaters.

We can take a bus to the Hudson Senior Center, which offers more than 25 activities each week including guest speakers, wellness workshops, fitness classes, and educational opportunities. The Hudson Public Library is a mile away and offers regular book clubs, knitting clubs, and other activities. Located just 30 minutes from both Worcester and Framingham, Meadowbrook’s central location is conveniently under an hour from Boston. We are close to Routes 62, 490, and 290 and can be on the Mass. Pike within 30 minutes.

Meadowbrook Homeowners Association is a well-established community for people over the age of 55 who enjoy a welcoming neighborhood.

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