New California Park Owner Meets with Residents
Lawrence Andrews, the new owner of River Grove RV Park on Highway 9 in Felton, Calif., visited the property Wednesday (Jan. 6), the day after he said he would retract a Jan. 4 notice announcing plans to close Jan. 11 for long overdue maintenance repairs.
Andrews has not posted a new notice, but is handling the situation verbally, according to the Santa Cruz Sentinel.
“I spoke to everyone,” he said at 5 p.m. Wednesday.
As for a new notice, he said, “I’m going to have my attorney draft it. We’re going to work this out.”
Steven Robillard and his fiancee, Nancy Munoz, who brought the shutdown notice to the attention of the Sentinel and county Supervisor Mark Stone, plan to leave at the end of the week. They had been living at the park for five months.
Stone had said Tuesday that a five-day notice to close was “outrageous” and “probably not enforceable.”
An estimated 15 to 20 of the 65 hookups are in use at the RV park, which has been in operation next to the San Lorenzo River for at least 30 years.
