Dear tenant of Midfield Mobile Home Park:
I am writing to advise you that Calgary City Council has recently come to the difficult decision to close Midfield Mobile Home Park (Midfield) on September 30, 2017. Also, Council has decided not to proceed with the construction of the East Hills Estates Mobile Home Park.
I assure you that this decision was not taken lightly, and we know this transition may not be easy for you. To assist with the move from Midfield and to help make other housing arrangements, The City of Calgary is offering special support through the Midfield Closure Program.
The Midfield Closure Program will provide all Midfield residents access to social service support provided through Homewood Human Solutions. In addition Tenants, who have signed a tenancy agreement with Calgary Housing Company, Calhome Properties Ltd., or The City of Calgary, and who meet the eligibility requirements, will have access to
money to help move/demolish their mobile home and relocate.
Please refer to the information booklet included with this letter for more details about the Midfield Closure Program.
Signs will also be posted in Midfield stating that it will be closing. The City will serve you with a formal notice to terminate tenancy at least one year prior to the closing date (September 30, 2017), in accordance with the Mobile Home Sites Tenancies Act.
If you have any questions concerning the closure of Midfield, please contact me at 403268-8969. If you have questions about day-to-day operations for Midfield, please contact Calgary Housing Company at 587-390-1200.
