About Bell Park

The Co-Op

United Veterans Mutual Housing Company, Inc., a.k.a. Bell Park Manor Terrace is a two story, garden apartment cooperative development built in 1951 as cooperative housing for veterans only.  In August 1990 the corporation went private and residents were no longer required to be veterans. All residents (shareholders) own shares in the corporation and are strongly encouraged to be involved in the community.  All shareholders must occupy their apartments, subletting is strictly prohibited.

No cats, dogs, or other pets, except fish and caged birds are allowed to be kept or harbored on the property.

Heat, hot water and cooking gas are included in the maintenance charges; the electric is sub-metered by Bay City Electric and is billed along with your monthly maintenance statement.

The Co-Op is serviced by Time Warner Cable and Verizon FIOS. Residents may choose from the two providers.

We have an independent Security Company, which patrols the property 12 hours daily; daytime and evening. 

We employ the services of professional landscapers.  They are responsible for cutting, edging and raking the lawns, trimming the shrubs, and regular cleaning and disposal of the leaves.  We encourage residents to plant flower gardens.

The Co-Op offers the services of an exterminator. If you need the services of the exterminator please contact the Management Office or the Maintenance Department for an appointment. 

If you intend to do work in your apartment you must submit a completed and signed Alteration Agreement to the Management Office, which must be approved by the Board of Directors,  as to the type of work you will be doing and the contractors license and insurance certificate. Department of Building permits may also be required.  You must call the Superintendent in the Maintenance Department for an inspection prior to, during and after any work is completed.
