County ready to start Evergreen Village relocation planning
SYCAMORE – DeKalb County is ready to start the potential two-year process of relocating mobile-home park residents who live in a flood plain.
County officials recently received the $4.2 million federal grant announced six months ago, paving the way for meetings with grant consultants and a chance to craft a rough timeline for relocating the people who live in the 129-unit Evergreen Village Mobile Home Park, 955 E. State St., said Gary Hanson, DeKalb County administrator. The park sits on Sycamore’s east side across from the Sycamore Golf Course.
Hanson said while the county is eager to act quickly to move residents before major flooding that occurred in 2007 and 2008 happens again, officials cannot afford a misstep in the process because it would mean the loss of federal dollars.
