For the last 6 months ONE Wake member institutions have been very active supporting the families that live in the Wellington Park mobile home community.
As you might know the park owner has decided to close the park effective January 15 of next year. The closing of the park will force the displacements of the many families that call Wellington Park their home. The owner is under contract to sell the park to a developer which is seeking approval from the Town of Wake Forest to re-zone the current use of the park.
After careful evaluation of all their options, the residents of the park have agreed not to fight the proposed re-zoning and have instead negotiated a pre-agreement with the developer that includes $375,000 to be divided among the families. These funds are conditional on the successful rezoning of the park.
The Town Commissioners will meet on Tuesday, September 21 at 6:00 pm to make a final decision on the rezoning. Park residents are asking us to join them that night as they ask the Town Commissioners to VOTE YES!
- Rally outside Wake Forest Town Hall at 5:30 PM for brief remarks and to demonstrate breadth of support to Town Commissioners as they enter the building;
- All who are comfortable are then invited to enter the Town Chambers to support residents during the meeting;
- The agenda for the Town meeting has not yet been released. We will have more details on where this item is on the Commissioner's agenda soon.
