LA Community Rising from the Ashes

Following up on a post from April 7, the Los Angeles Daily News says a majority of residents of Oakridge Mobile Home Park support an LA city plan to install 60 new manufactured homes in the community and rent them to qualified applicants as affordable housing.  A 2008 wildfire destroyed nearly all the 600 former homes, and only 284 homesites have since been re-occupied.  Some residents are skeptical about bringing in renters, but also voiced concerns about the community staying in business.  Many former residents used insurance money to purchase site-built homes outside the community, seizing on falling home prices at the time.  City Councilman Richard Alarcón and Oakridge owners have scheduled additional meetings with residents to further iron out any problems.
