Full story: South Florida Sun-Sentinel

The clock is ticking. When the Palma Nova mobile home park closes in February, an estimated 3,000 people will lose their homes in what appears to be the largest eviction in Broward County history.

No need to rush, they have known about this deal for a long time. With all the empty condos and foreclosures empty out there, it should not be hard to find a cheap place to live. Tthe Obama plan is to redistribute the housing, so if you have 2 people who own a 4 bedroom house, two of these traIier folks will be redistributed to THEM.

I live in Palma Nova and unfortunatly this came a lil quicker then we thought. We all knew it was going to close, all the warning signs were there. Residents need to move now DONT wait til the end. Residents who wait will have a hard time finding a place in Davie slim pickings. The town knew to they knew 3 yrs ago when they ok-ed the RAC. Palma NOva and Everglades is right in the smack of it. The next turmoil will be when Everglades closes. Then the ones on 84, mobile home parks are a dying breed. Town wants mobile homes out of Davie.

Nothing like a clear understanding of basic economics.

Let's see, it begins with a HS diploma, which then leads to:

1. Lower paying job in the free market.
2. Better paying job in the military.
3. Either a Community or 4 year College.

No HS diploma leads to:

1. Lowest paying jobs.
2. Crime
3. Jail

Build upon the above for the rest.

Now what part of anything I have written involves republicans or democrats? It's all about individual effort and achievement.

So, are you an individual, a republican, or a democrat?

Approximately one-quarter of Davie is taken up by mobile homes. These guys pay almost no city or county taxes, but still require all the same services. They are only charged the mobile home license fee, which is a small amount, and the rest of us are paying thousands each year. Good bye mobile home parks. At least now the land will be producing tax revenue which will give the other three-quarters of residents a break!

The owner of the leased land paid property taxes.

The hospital that is slated to go there will not be.

The only one making out here is the owner of that property.

Are you retarded?

Hey Now, you must be a Bush McCain supporter. Another compassionate conservative or are you on the Foreman payroll too, another lackey. Thanks for the economics lesson. Many of the people who live in these parks are older, or low income people. The system that you took advantage of, or perhaps you went to private school, has failed many people for many reasons. People like you are anti-abortionist but dont donate a dime to orphanages. You pobably one of those republicans supporting family values, as long as they are your family values. Everything looks simple from the top of the pile doesn't it. Got all of the answers dont you!

Itr doesn't seem like an issue to me. Mr. Forman owns the land, he's the landlord. The people living in the trailers are tenants.
The tenants knew for year that the park would be closing and got six months official notice.
They are being reimbursed...
In an apartment rental the tenents would get 30 days notice, period.
I'm sorry, no sympathy from me.

We need to get rid of all the affordable housing in Davie ! We need more development of fast food franchises and strip malls. Those kids at the colleges across the street don't want to stare at a trailer park, they want a Starbucks and Pollo Tropical. Let's get our priorities straight !

OK, I'm still trying to get over the woman with a 1977 trailer and an $18,000 mortgage. I guess since you are that stupid, it doesn't surprise me that you think it's worth the expense to move it.

Sounds like this is just the push some families need to get into foreclosures or other permanent structures during this market. To the stay-at-home mom, get a job! What you could make working is surely more than what you'd pay in child care for a 2 year old!
