Mobile home park permit freeze may bring lawsuits

Following the county commissioners’ recent extension of a Miami-Dade county freeze on building permits for mobile home park properties, some are worried that the county is exposing itself to lawsuits. The owner of Colonial Acres Mobile Home Park at 9674 NW 10th Avenue has filed a vested rights claim with the county asking for a zoning application to be processed, and some commissioners think the owner may file a lawsuit next. The owner had secured a land use amendment for the park property five days before commissioners began the freeze in 2007.
