Residents given 30 days to vacate park that has sewage issues in Newark

Owner of Sand Hill Mobile Home Park in Newark was connected to Canalside in Lyons

Sand Hill Mobile Home Park in Newark has been shut down and residents have 30 days to vacate the premises, according to residents and the Arcadia Code Enforcer.

A resident of the mobile home park, who wishes to remain anonymous, says the mobile home park was shut down by the New York State Department of Health. She says state officials were at the park Tuesday night informing residents of the park’s closure.

“These residents have been forced into an extremely horrific situation through no fault of their own. Sand Hill’s park owner owes a duty to his residents and his lack of action is completely unacceptable,” State Sen. Pam Helming (R-54) in a statement. “I have a call into the Attorney General’s office urging her to look into this situation immediately and request that housing be offered to these people who have been displaced from their homes. No family should have to go through this, especially during the holiday season.”

A Wayne County DOH representative says they are, “trying to do all they can to help the residents.” The State DOH released a statement regarding the situation Wednesday.
