Alternatives the City Considered
The City has given the owner of EEMHP time to seek a loan for repairs or to find a buyer who would make repairs to the park. However, the income of the park would not be enough to repay a loan to make repairs and no buyer has come forward to buy and repair the park. Because of the poor condition of the water/sewer system and the owner's inability to pay for a new system, the City of Manassas was faced with two options it considered realistic. 1. Shut down the utility systems in EEMHP immediately, or 2. Work with the property owner to close the park. The City wished to give residents the time to make other living arrangements and so chose to work with the property owner to close the park.
