The article Carson developers to provide $22 million in relocation benefits to mobile park residents is the glossy veneer side of the story. $22M may sound like a lot, but the appraisals and the tactics used to persuade residents to move early over the last two years tell a completely different story:
Lied about timeline for the project’s completion. See page 97 of the EIR made public on August 4, 2022.
The City Attorney, Sunny Soltani, sandbagged the residents November 4, 2019, telling them they would be made whole – NOT BY A LONGSHOT!
Appraisals are 35%-50% below market value defended by a state law even the City Attorney characterized as ambiguous with no case law to support the definition of “reasonable cost of relocation.”
This story is bigger than the two examples above and shows the City’s favoritism towards Faring Capital, the owner of Imperial Avalon Mobile Estates. We would very much like to show you the whole story. It will show you a concerted effort by the City and the owner to forcibly remove fixed income seniors from the only home they’ve known for the past four decades to out of greed.
The neighborhood west of the park is also up in arms due to the amount of traffic and pollution it will add to the City.
I really hope you want to know more. As your disclaimer says:
