Resident Voices

The Path to Successful Co-op Conversion

“Even though we have some heated discussions and we often raise our voices at you, please know that we recognize that UHAB has its heart in the right place and is really trying to get us to the finish line of becoming cooperative homeowners.”

“We take the word ‘cooperative’ seriously. That’s why we have a large board that meets frequently. There are some who are more active than others, but we never, never make decisions without the full inclusion of each board member, and with frequent all-resident meetings to make sure everyone is informed and has a voice.”
