FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) - A Georgia company's plan to build multifamily housing for Northern Arizona University students spells trouble for the residents of a trailer park that now occupies part of the site.
The Arizona Daily Sun reports 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 says the rest estate company is excited about the Flagstaff market and wants to build two multistory buildings.
Residents say their trailers are too old to move and that the relocation money mentioned so far wouldn't stretch far enough.
Flagstaff Vice Mayor Carol Evans says the trailer park's residents are some of the most impoverished in the northern Arizona city.
