In August 2015, residents of Puget View Mobile Home Park in Des Moines, Washington learned  their Park was closing. In response, the residents formed a nonprofit and sued the Park’s owner, Waterview Manager, LLC. in King County Superior Court. 

Puget View and Waterview are pleased to announce the litigation has been settled on terms mutually beneficial to both parties.  

“It is good this dispute has been resolved,” said Tony Gonzalez, an attorney with the Basic Human Needs project at Columbia Legal Services. Gonzalez represented Puget View along with Columbia Legal Services attorney, Amy Crewdson.  

The home owners have promised to leave the Park no later than June 20, 2017, in exchange for financial compensation, and Puget View has agreed to drop its lawsuit. With this resolution, Waterview’s development plans for the property can move forward.
