Wheel Inn Ranch fundraising effort now underway
The park’s new owner has told the residents of the park — many of them low income, elderly and disabled — they must be moved out by the end of January to make way for future development. Unfortunately, the majority of the park’s mobile homes are too old and fragile to be moved so their owners will be forced to literally abandon them, even though many residents sank their life savings into buying them.
Even the mobile homes in better condition will be expensive to move, plus their owners will be forced to leave behind any external improvements to their trailers (such as porches and carports) without any compensation.
Scottsdale City Councilwoman Kathy Littlefield has worked with the city’s Human Services staff to coordinate assistance from the city, state and federal agencies such as the Veterans Administration — many of the Wheel Inn Ranch residents are veterans or spouses of veterans.
