Prairie Lake Estates is a resident-owned not for profit manufactured home community in Kenosha, Wisconsin. We are a terrific neighborhood for people who like a suburban setting that's an easy drive in Kenosha, Wisconsin. Prairie Lake Estates is owned by the community members who live here -- we are a resident-owned community (ROC). That means we control the rent and make the rules. In November 2012, we formed the Prairie Lake Estates Homeowners Cooperative and, on July 15, 2013, the Cooperative purchased the land and infrastructure, such as the roads and water lines. On November 14, 2014, the Cooperative was recognized by the Internal Revenue Service/Department of the Treasury as being a Charitable Benevolent Organization under 501 (c) 3. Now, a democratically elected board of directors manages the business of running Prairie Lake Estates Homeowners Cooperative. Every member household in the community has a say in who sits on that board, how we spend our money, the annual budget, and whether we make changes to the rent.
