APPROVED 6-0: Mountain View Mobile Home Park / La Luna Collective Letter of Financial Commitment
La Luna Community Cooperative (the Co-op) in partnership with Thistle—a non-profit affordable housing organization—has requested City assistance in the resident acquisition of the Mountain View Mobile Home Park (MVMHP). MVMHP is a 34-unit mobile home community located on the eastern edge of the Old Town neighborhood at the intersection of E. Cleveland Drive and Burlington Avenue, currently owned by MVMHP, LLC.
Council approved a letter of commitment for up to $495,000. The letter mirrors Boulder County’s commitment to La Luna Community Cooperative in the amount of a forgivable interest-free loan of $495,000.
