NAU expansion could boot trailer park residents

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. — A Georgia company’s plan to build multifamily housing
for Northern Arizona University students spells trouble for the residents of a
trailer park that occupies part of the site.

The Arizona Daily Sun reported that residents of
Arrowhead Village residents have been told the project now awaiting rezoning
approval by the city would force them out.

Andrew Young of Athens-based Landmark Properties said the rest estate company
is excited about the Flagstaff market and wants to construct two multistory
buildings.

Residents said their trailers are too old to move and that the relocation money
mentioned wouldn’t stretch far enough.

Flagstaff Vice Mayor Carol Evans said the trailer park’s residents are some of
the most impoverished in the northern Arizona city.
