Demolition Halted By Judge's Order

A judge halts a developers demolition project at a Lexington trailer park.
Several homes in the Ingleside Mobile Home Park, on Devonshire Avenue, have already been demolished.

The judge's ruling also stopped any utilities from being cut off, and ordered the developer to provide security for the remaining tenants.

Some of those still living there say they're only being offered $1,000 to move, for homes that are worth at least $5,000.

The judge's order remains in place until a hearing can be held on the matter next week.

The mobile homes are being demolished to make room for a student housing complex.

    Isn't it against the law to move a trailer as old as these are to live in. Some sort of codes thing for safety? $1000, though not much is more than the scrap value of what is left.
