Colorado Lake Cooperative

A resident-owned community

How much does it cost to live in Colorado Lake Cooperative?

Community members decide whether to increase the rent and by how much.

  • Each Member household pays three charges.
  • The first is the Application Fee of $45 for each adult in the home.
  • The second charge is the one-time Membership Fee of $100. And, Members get their Membership Fee back if they sell their homes.
  • The third charge is the lot rent that is collected monthly to pay for operating expenses like taxes, insurance, water, sewer, trash/recycling collection and the Corporation’s mortgage payments. Lot rent is currently $514 per month.
  • Trash and recycling is collected in bins provided by Republic Waste Disposal every Wednesday. This is included in the lot rent.
  • Utilities like internet, cable, phone, electricity and natural gas are all billed to you directly. (Alyrica Networks is one of the internet options you have in Colorado Lake Cooperative. A small discount is provided to residents by Alyrica, and after paying the connection fee directly to Alyrica, you can add the monthly service fee to the monthly lot rent.)
  • Colorado Lake Cooperative has storage for RVs available. Storage is in a locked, gated area near the entrance to the community. The charge for RV storage is $15 per month, and this is paid with your lot rent.
  • We have a say in when and why our rent changes.
  • Cooperative Management, Inc., collects monthly lot rent, accepts applications for Membership, conducts background and financial checks for prospective Members and enforces Community Rules.
