Rows of single-wide mobile homes with small grassy lawns line the narrow streets of Paradise Park, a mobile home community near Pomona Elementary School in Grand Junction.

It’s the kind of community low income families and people on fixed incomes move to to keep their costs in line with their budgets, Joyce Blackburn said, whose narrow wood-paneled mobile home sits in the back corner of the park. However, those costs are going up, Blackburn said, after a new company purchased the park and announced increased rent and that it would no longer pay for utilities like sewer and water.
