Springfield mobile home park residents share concerns about possible rezoning

Michael sevren.

Tonight -- residents of a springfield mobile home park say they're terrified they'll lose their homes -- and they don't know how they'll survive.

Kezi 9 news reporter jessica babb spoke with some of them who say.... it's just not fair.

Babb: many people here at patrician mobile home park say they're on tight budgets and can't afford to live anywhere else.

They say if the owner kicks them out..

They'll have nowhere to go."

Right now... the mobile home park is zoned residential -- but officials with the city of springfield say the owner wants to change that to mixed commercial -- which would allow businesses to operate next to homes.

Officials say that doesn't mean the mobile home park is closing right away --- but they did say the owner wants to redevelop the property within the next ten years.

Under state law... the owner would be required to pay residents anywhere from 6 thousand to 10 thousand depending on the size of their home.

But one resident i spoke with said that's not enough.

Sot: for myself that will be 25 to 35 percent reduction in value of my home.

Not to mention the stress of losing the community here if you've been here 10 years you get to know people.

And where am i going to go?

If the park does close... officials say the residents will get a one year notice.

On cam: coming up at five - hear why one resident says this is just part of business.
