What is Cooperative Ownership?

Living at the River Bluff Cooperative in northwest Rochester, Minnesota is a unique concept of property ownership and residence.

When you decide to live at River Bluff you purchase a share of the River Bluff Cooperative Corporation entitling you occupancy in one unit of the property. Rather than a single stand-alone dwelling, when you live at River Bluff you are a shareholder and part owner of the corporation that owns the entire River Bluff Cooperative building.

As a resident of River Bluff you pay a monthly association fee – similar to rent – that covers your share of the operating expenses of your corporation that owns the property. Those expenses include maintenance of the property, services required for the property, mortgage payments, property taxes, insurance and other costs.

River Bluff has a Board of Directors – comprised of other residents of the building like yourself – who are elected by you and the other cooperative shareholders. The Board of Directors manage the property, make decisions about every aspect of the property as well as managing the finances and operation of the corporation itself.

Your ownership of a share in the River Bluff Corporation means you play an important democratic role – with an equal say – in the management of the building in which you live.
