Road Construction will Require Manufactured Home Residents to Move

More than two dozen homes in Greenwood Estates manufactured home community just south of Indianapolis, Indiana will have to relocate while Worthsville Road is expanded to accommodate increased traffic and development from U. S. 31 to State Road 135. The first leg of the expansion, from U. S. 31 to Interstate 65 was completed last fall, according to what Daily Journal tells MHProNews.

While the expansion has long been on the drawing board of the city of Greenwood, it will not likely affect the residents until next spring; and because the expansion is 80 percent funded by the U. S. government, residents will be reimbursed for the costs associated with relocation, whether it involves moving the homes to a new location and/or purchasing another home, according to Boomerang Ventures’ Joe Gromosky, who will be handling the relocation process.

While several residents have expressed concerns about what the reimbursement will be to move, RHP Properties, which manages the MHC, said it is monitoring the situation.

RHP Properties President Joel Brown said, “Our highest priority is the safety and well being of our residents. We are aware of the city’s plans and are in the process of reviewing. We will be reaching out to city of Greenwood officials to obtain more information and confirm specifics of the proposed plans.” ##
