Post Falls mobile home residents face eviction

POST FALLS — Dozens of inhabitants of a mobile home park in Post Falls are facing eviction because the new owners have deemed the property and its infrastructure unsuitable.

The decision has left El Rancho Mobile Home Park residents frustrated and nervous.

Last week, residents were notified the 70-lot mobile home complex was shutting down and they had until July 31 to move off the property.

Longtime resident Denise Brigham told the Coeur d’Alene Press she is heartbroken and concerned about the impact on neighbors, many of which are unemployed and unable to move the homes.

The property was acquired last year by an investment group called FF, LLC.

Coeur d’Alene attorney Randall Probasco represents FF, LLC., and says the closure is due to deteriorating infrastructure and concerns about public health issues.
