200+ site manufactured home community may be sold and redeveloped

Gaslight_Village_-_credit_MHVillageLJWorld reports that Gaslight Village Mobile Home Park in Lawrence, KS is under contract to be sold for redevelopment, a decade after the community was split to allow construction of a Best Buy, Home Depot and other commercial development northeast of 31st and Iowa streets. Edwardsville-based Mid-America Manufactured Housing Communities, which owns the manufactured home land lease community, has distributed notification letters to residents of the 148 homes at the park, which has 241 spaces. “The rumors are flying wildly again,” said Tom Horner, corporate secretary for Mid-America. “There is a potential buyer out there that is looking at buying it. We just wanted to be honest with our residents and tell them the truth.” While Horner would not comment on the proposed use, citing a confidentiality agreement, city officials have been contacted by a company that envisions a project “along the lines of a residential use,” said Scott McCullough, the city’s planning director. This may include single family, or multi-unit projects, including townhomes, condos or apartments. Relocation assistance would be provided to existing residents, if the sale and land use goes through. As Gaslight Village’s owners say in their letter to residents: “We will keep you informed as the potential sale progresses during the next several months.”
