Residents almost all out at Georgia Estates

July 19, 2007

Albany-- Nearly all the residents of an East Albany mobile home park have moved out to make way for a new WalMart. 

Only six families are left in Georgian Mobile Home Estates on Cordele Road. In May, more than  90 families were told they had to move by the end of this month.

Some of them still aren't happy about it. "I think it was wrong whether it's the city, Wal-Mart or whoever it was," said Barbara Dotson. "They should have justified us with money to move our homes. That is why I am still here because I am disabled and I am waiting on my disability."

Many people who lived at the park left their trailers behind because they couldn't afford to move them. Those trailers have been stripped of wiring and metal.

The remains will be bulldozed on August first.
