Home Owners Association

Homeowners living in the 611 Cedar Residential Community in Port Hadlock have a number of partner organizations, which represent mobile and manufactured homeowners. Tenants as owners are encouraged to become members of any or all partner organizations in order to learn about the resources the organizations offer to residents when they become members of the associations.

We who live here at 611 Cedar are pretty independent type folks. We tend to value our freedoms as we exercise our rights. We look out for our neighbors and they look after us.

The question has come up? Do we residents here at 611 have a homeowner's association? Well, that depends on what is the definition of a homeowner's association? If the definition is a neighborhood of friendly folks, who respect each other and look out for each other, you'd have to say that the residents of 611 Cedar indeed have a homeowner's association.

We are definitely homeowners. Each home is owned by at least one of the people living there. A single owner may be a retired senior or a single parent. Couples, who own homes, might be husband and wife or partners. And, families of various sizes own their own homes. No renters here. Owners at Six-Eleven are proud of owning their own homes. We work hard to take care of our lives, meet our obligations, and enjoy our time at home.

We associate with one another in many ways. It might be daily. It might be monthly. We chat at the mailbox, over the hedge, and at the kitchen table. Our associations with one another happen often and are meaningful. Sometimes associating with one another are spontaneous, sometimes planned.

Many homeowners belong to larger associations, which represent owners of mobile and manufactured home. Some of the associations are Manufactured Home Owners of America and Association of Manufactured Home Owners, Tenants Union of Washington State.

Homeowners and park owners enter into lease agreements to define the relationships between homeowners and park owners. As part of the agreement, park owners agree to follow the law outlined in the Washington State RCW 59.20The Mobile/Manufactured Home Landlord Tenant Act. The Duties and Responsibilities of the Park Owner, the Landlord, are spelled out as the law of the State of Washington.

We meet in small groups with neighbors who live close-by. We have common interests to discuss. Like-minded folks gather around common interests. These small groups spring up spontaneously, in response to new situations and opportunities.

Some of us residents have been living here at Six-Eleven for 20 or more years. Others of us for 10 years. And for some new residents, this may their first year. Whether we are recent or old-timers, we recognize a certain sense of community among owners, who share the streets between our homes.

    Park Owner

    The 611 Residential Community is in a transition from one owner to another. The new owner purchased the park merely three months ago in June of 2018 from Robert and Rosie Bates, who developed and operated the park for forty-years.

    All current leases were assigned to tenants by the previous owner (Bates) and continue in effect until their renewal dates.

    Rules and Regulations proposed by the new owner are 6-pages of "do's and don'ts" to be activated in one year after the expiration of the current leases and their governing Rules and Regulations, namely one page of rules and regulations attached to the Bates leases.
