Seminole Tribe to close mobile home park with 1500 residents





The Seminole Tribe of Florida is shutting down a mobile home park that houses about 1,500 non-Indian people.

The tribe leased trust land for the Seminole Mobile Home Estates to a third party. The agreement was due to expire in 2024 but the tribe bought out the company and wants all residents gone by the start of 2013.

The park takes up 110 acres of the 497-acre Hollywood Reservation so space is a premium. The tribe plans to use the land for housing for its members.
