LANSING, Mich. – Ingham County Health Department has issued a condemnation order for the Life O’ Riley Mobile Home Park and Campground, 6726 Washington Avenue, Lansing, MI 48911, due to an imminent public health threat. The leading issue for the condemnation order is the history of the failing sewage disposal system, including numerous illicit discharges of sewage and other public health issues as they relate to water supply and solid waste disposal.
The owner of the Life O’Riley Mobile Home Park and Campground has 10 days from the posting of this order to cease all operations and close down the mobile home park and campground. All residents of the mobile home park and campground will have to relocate within those 10 days. If a resident owns their mobile home unit and it can be moved, the owner of the mobile home unit can move it to another mobile home park. ICHD is condemning the mobile home park/campground, not individual mobile home units.
The City of Lansing and other community partner agencies have put together resources to assist residents with emergency housing and to find alternative long-term housing. The Life O’Riley Mobile Home Park and Campground can be reopened when the facility owner/manager can demonstrate to ICHD that all issues identified in the order have been corrected.
There will be a community meeting today, Tuesday, February 25, 2014, from 2:00-5:00 PM for residents at Cristo Rey Catholic Church, located at 201 West Miller Road, to voice their concerns, ask questions, and to assist in the relocation of individuals and families. Please see the attached flyer for additional information.
If you have any questions regarding the condemnation order, please contact ICHD at 517-887-4312. If you have questions regarding relocation or housing, please contact the City of Lansing at 517-483-4477.
News Ten's Alyssa Fenske will have the details tonight at six.
