The Colorado River Indian Tribes have confirmed the Riverview Mobile Home & RV Park in Earp, Calif. will be closed as of the end of February 2020. The Pioneer asked whether the park was being closed after seeing many social media posts the weekend of Sept. 7-8 from people who claimed to be park residents who said they were being evicted.
The Tribes sent the following statement Sept. 10 by e-mail:
“The lease with the prior management company for the Riverview Mobile Home and RV Park on the California side of the reservation expired on August 31, 2019 and as of September 1, control and management of the property has returned to CRIT.
After looking at the costs to rehabilitate and update the infrastructure, the Tribes has decided to close the park.
CRIT wants to give park residents ample time to relocate. Therefore, the official closing date won’t be until February 29, 2020.
CRIT is evaluating future plans for the site.”
Riverview Mobile Home & RV Park is located on Parker Dam Road just north of California Route 62 turnoff into Parker.
The Pioneer attempted to contact the office at the park, but found the phone number listed for the park was no longer in service.
