Carson's Mobile Home Residents Evicted
Less than two months have passed since a judge ordered the indefinite closure of Park Granada Trailer Lodge Mobile, or Park Granada located at the corner of Main and Carson Street. A three-minute drive and you will find yourself across Carson Civic Center and Park Avalon, a mobile home park in danger of closure. In recent years the City of Carson has become a hit for big shot developers. A Los Angeles County city off the 405 Freeway, the City Planning Commission has hoped to shift Carson from a manufacturing city with industrial and factory structures to a destination location. But mobile home park residents are seeing the consequences. During a time where the coronavirus pandemic has claimed 24,685 lives in Los Angeles County, landlords continue to evict tenants and homeowners in land leases. Despite a federal ban to stop the displacements, Carson mobile home parks are in jeopardy. With three parks set to close and others on the verge, residents are experiencing eviction. And residents of other mobile home parks are left wondering when they will be next.
