More than 50 area residents evicted from Collin Park Marina

by | Dec 7, 2016 | Latest

The roofs of these two trailers, which have been permanently parked at a Lake Lavon facility, have tarped roofs to stop leaks. A practice allowing long term stays at recreational vehicle parks at the lake has been curtailed, forcing residents who can be considered homeless, to find new locations for their homes.

Homelessness takes many forms, and for a sizeable group of people that has meant living in travel trailers in a Lake Lavon park; but, that life is coming to an end as they are being forced to move.

More than 50 travel trailers owned by people who can’t afford to live anywhere else, have been parked at Collin Park Marina on the eastern edge of Wylie, some of them for more than a decade. Last month they received notices that they have to move by Jan. 1, 2017.

“Where are you going to go?” asked Roy (not his real name).
