Residents of the 13.6-acre park, which contains 81 manufactured and mobile homes for residents 55-years-old and older, will most likely have to find another place to live.

Resident Debra Martin said this next phase is going to be hard for her and her neighbors to tackle.

"I feel sad for the older people in our park and those who just bought homes," Martin said. "They took their retirement money and bought these homes expecting to live out their retirement there."

Urban Transitions LLC wants to develop new restaurants, businesses and apartments in place of the mobile home park.

The Patrician landlord sent out a letter asking residents to sign an amendment to their lease that would ensure the park would stay open through January 2023.
