Forced to move

I am surprised that no one has written a letter to the editor about the decision of Ladd and Jeanette Henderson to close Evergreen Terrace.

We have all been given a one-year eviction notice. That will relieve the Hendersons of the obligation to pay any money in connection with our moving, even though the last four months are in the dead of winter. What senior citizen or working family with children in school can move a mobile home from November to February and who wants too? Or where can 26 residences move to?

How can a single mother, senior citizens, and young working family's come up with about $1,500 to move a single wide and $3,500-$4,000 to move a double wide? Some owners feel forced to sell at a fraction of the value. No advance notice was given as some people built sheds and some had extensive work done on their homes.

Almost all of us intended on living here the rest of our lives. It is a quiet neighborhood, all the lawns are kept mowed, and everything here was orderly. Now our lives are disrupted and we are all stressed out about where to go and what to do. We paid top dollar for our homes and now there is no way we can get the value out of them. There really should be a law against this sort of thing.
