Jorge Quito is just 17, but his dream is to live in his family’s home for the rest of his life. That dream is in danger, though, as his family and neighbors now fight to keep the land their home sits on from being taken out from under them.
“We love where we live. It’s a beautiful neighborhood. I don’t want people to buy it and take it over. I want to stay there,” Quito said of the Lowry Grove manufactured home community where he has lived with his parents, brother, and sister for the past two years.
Recently Quito and the 100 other families of the Lowry Grove were informed that the property under their homes would be sold on June 11th to Continental Property Group (CPG), however many of the homes at Lowry Grove cannot be moved and would be demolished following the sale of the property. Rather than accept the sale and the destruction of their community, they have chosen to organize and are trying to raise the $6 million needed to counter CPG’s offer.
At Lowry Grove, many of the residents own their homes. What they don’t own is the land underneath their homes. That is currently owned by Phil Johnson who has been trying to sell the land for the last ten years much to the surprise of the residents.
