College Park Seeing More Development

A 50 year mobile home park located at the corner of Edgewater Drive and Maury Road home to many elderly residents has just delivered 6 month eviction notices. This mobile home park along with 9 acres south, which is still in negotiations with Orange County Public Schools, will be redeveloped with office, retail, and homes. Many elderly residents cannot afford to rent for $225/month. The builder indicates it will help residents to move their mobile up to $3000.00, if new enough and up to building codes, or compensate $1375.00 to $2750.00 depending on home size. Still residents do want to move 30 miles away or can afford to pay $10,000.00 needed to anchor the mobile down. Courtesy of Orlando Sentinel 9/13/06.
