Mobile home park warned by the city

Posted: Updated:

The Victory Road Mobile Home Park on Cusseta road has been cautioned by the city of Columbus.

In a letter issued to the owners of the park by Mayor Tomlinson she states, "You are hereby notified that said property is a chronic site of criminal and derelict activity, including persistent violence and drug related, at this location."

The letter also states that "this property is being maintained below lawful minimum code standards and is therefore, a public nuisance."

Upon a visit to the Park, News Three spoke with several of the residents who said they liked living in the neighborhood.

"If they tear it down a lot of us that can't get out there and pay rent, what are we gonna do," said one of the residents.

Others went on to say that they don't believe there are pervasive acts of crime in the area. They said the crime that is committed is done by outsiders.

On Feb. 7 the park was inspected by the Columbus Consolidated Government Department of Inspection. They issued five solid waste warnings and three junk vehicle warnings.

The Mayors letter to owners Richard and Floyd Redding references a Georgia code that allows the district attorney to seek an injunction against a property if it is being used for sexual crimes or drug related activities.

The city is encouraging the owners to meet with them to discuss options for stabilizing the mobile home park.
