Trailer Park To Be Shopping Center?

The El Rancho mobile home park in Post Falls met a quick fate last summer. Notices posted on trailer doors in January told residents they had six months to get out. By winter, the lot was being bulldozed. As we reported then, many of the park's residents felt the eviction was unfair or worried about how they'd afford to move. Many mobile home park residents own their homes, but not the land underneath them, leaving them with expensive moving bills or the prospect of leaving their homes behind. “Just because we live in trailers doesn’t mean we’re trailer trash,” one resident, Lisa Cornett, said then. “Don’t treat us like trash”/Heidi Groover, Inlander.
