Burley Sponsors Local Mobile Home Park Resource Fair
by Bend Weekly News Sources

Tenants Invited to Join Agencies for Informational Meeting

After three out of 34 Bend mobile home parks received closure notices this year, tenants have been left with a few months to decide what to do next.   The Bend closures follow on the footsteps of Portland area mobile home park closures where tenants were provided with resource fairs to answer those questions.

State Representative Chuck Burley (R-Bend) is sponsoring a similar resource fair on August 15 for Bend residents forced to move in the coming months.  Tenants from mobile home parks throughout Bend are invited to join Burley, state and local governments, and profit and non-profit organizations for the informational meeting. 

“I feel heartbroken for the folks that have to leave their homes and communities for new living accommodations,” Burley said. “This fair is designed to allow folks to access consolidated information, ask questions and acquire the resources necessary to help in their difficult transition.”

The Mobile Home Park Resource Fair will be held on August 15, from 5P.M. to 7P.M. at East Lake Village Community Forum Building on 675 N.E. Bellevue in Bend.  The event is sponsored by Rep. Burley and hosted by Housing Works.

 “This is a good opportunity for mobile home park tenants to ask questions and acquire information that might otherwise be difficult,” Burley continued.  “I am proud of the collective work that has taken place between the many organizations in Central Oregon to facilitate this important gathering.” 

The list of informational providers include: Oregon Housing Community & Services, Oregon Health Department, Oregon Department of Human Services, City of Bend, Deschutes County Tax Assessor, Bend-LaPine School District, Deschutes Mental Health, COCAAN, Central Oregon Council on Aging, Housing Works, The Vintage House, Mountain Laurel Lodge, Legal Aid, Humane Society, Mobile Home Movers, Demolition Contractor, and Moving Company’s.

For more information on the Mobile Home Park Resource Fair, contact Debie Griffith with Rep. Burley’s office at 541-480-8007.  Transportation and accommodation information can be obtained by the Tenants United for Fairness (TUFF) at 541-317-0894 or 541-322-0795.
