Tue, Aug 15, 2017 – Approximately 60 residents at the Willits and Valley Oaks mobile home parks gathered at the Harrah Senior Center Thursday for the second straight month to meet with representatives from a mobile home residency advocacy group. The meetings took place in the wake of a new management company threatening eviction of tenants failing to respond to what residents say are a number of unclear demands and requirements.

Abraham Arrigotti and Drita Bronkey Resurface
Previously with Sierra Corporate Management – Now with BoaVida Communities

Elias Weiner is president at BoaVida Communities and co-founder of Cascade Corporate Management in Sacramento.

According to his LinkedIn account, Cascade has been managing manufactured home communities since 2004 and currently oversees 64 properties with more than 5,000 spaces. These now include Willits Mobile Home Park and Valley Oaks Mobile Home Park.

Neither Weiner, Bronkey nor anyone else affiliated with Cascade Corporate Management returned calls about tenant concerns in Willits, but a letter sent to Tarver dated Aug. 1 from Abe Arrigotti, a representative from BoaVida states the management company simply wants to ensure the park looks its best.

We want to create a clean and comfortable environment for all our tenant homeowners,” Arrigotti writes. “Our goal is never to evict anyone. We are in the business of leasing spaces not creating vacancy.

Arrigotti told Tarvers that the management plans to raise rent on an annual schedule.

He goes on to write that residents’ request for additional time to meet the new management’s requirements will be granted. The letter states homeowners are being asked to follow the park residency rules and guidelines “to keep them from running afoul of the MRL (Mobile Home Residency Law) and Title 25 violations.

Arrigotti writes there was a “perceived” rent increase based on the fact the management was merely following the guidelines set forth and yard discounts where not rewarded to everyone.

Nothing could be further from the truth. Again, our desire is a clean and safe community our tenant homeowners can be proud of and be happy to call home,” he wrote.

Thu, Aug 10, 2017 – Applause erupted Tuesday as city council members unanimously agreed to establish a moratorium on converting Vista Diablo Mobile Estates into an all ages property.

Faced with the threat of litigation by the city, Kort & Scott Financial Group signed a 10-year agreement to maintain the mobile home park as a mostly-seniors community. That contract is set to expire Oct 9, 2017, however, and the rapidly approaching deadline is what prompted residents to bring their concerns to City Hall.

Before casting his vote, Councilman Tony Tiscareno chastised Kort & Scott for failing to have a spokesperson at the public hearing. ‘I’m very disappointed that the owners and management did not come here to express their point of view. That tells me that they’re not taking this that seriously,’ he said.
