MHC Residents: Busted Walkways are Dangerous

January 7th, 2013 Comments off

The StandardExaminer reports from Farr West, Utah the Westwood Village Homeowners Association will meet Tue., Jan. 8 to discuss cracked and uneven sidewalks that pose a risk to the 400 seniors who live in the 350 homes at the MHC. After attempts to get a response from owner Equity LifeStyle Properties, Inc. were not successful, the homeowners association decided to go public with their plight. Streets, sidewalks, and driveways are allegedly poorly maintained, and the roots of trees have contributed to the damage, especially worrisome for those who can only move around with the aid of walkers. Association president and resident Richard Robinson says he hopes the owner will have a representative at the Tue. meeting. As MHProNews knows, Equity LifeStyle is the largest owner of MHCs in North America.

Planning Commission Moves Beyond Jurisdiction

September 8th, 2012 Comments off

The vagazette informs MHProNews compassion led the Planning Commission in James City, Virginia to take a step beyond the legal border of the Public Service Area (PSA) and recommend extending sewer service to residents of the Greensprings Mobile Home Park. The two-and-a-half hour meeting saw several of the 80 residents in attendance overwhelmed with emotion as they described their plight of dealing with the failing septic system. Greensprings owner John Franklin is willing to pay $600,000 to run the sewer lines into the community, but a special use permit is required. County planning staff recommended denying the request out of concern for setting a future precedent. The Planning Commission voted unanimously in favor of the permit and rezoning application and sent it on to the Board of Supervisors for review.
