Mobile home park residents in danger of losing their homes again

NORTH CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -

People who live in the Trailwood mobile home park have another reason to worry about the future of their homes. 

A few weeks ago the City of North Charleston got a rezoning request that would turn the homes of 400 people into an area for light industrial use. 

While that plan was nixed, residents now have received a letter from property management that Charleston County has proposed a new Dorchester Road connector that would place a four lane highway right through the park.

People are now worried about how much time they have left in their homes.

"It's like my world has come apart," said resident Iona Morton."I understand and accept the fact that we don't own the property, but this is my home. I am still paying my mortgage and I have eight more years. I'm almost through.

In the letter, management says several buyers have made offers on the land for the past several years and a sale may close in the next few months.

    The tallest points of downtown Charleston has shifted from steeple tops to towering cranes building the next high-rise. In downtown Charleston, the intersections of Meeting and Woolfe Streets to Meeting and Huger Street are only about a half mile apart. One apartment complex already exists in that area (Elan Midtown) and sits at 97% capacity with more than 200 units. Over the next year, four more apartment complexes will be built and opened.
