FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. -- A Georgia company's plan to build multifamily housing for Northern Arizona University students spells trouble for the residents of a trailer park that occupies part of the site.

The Arizona Daily Sun reported that residents of Arrowhead Village residents have been told the project now awaiting rezoning approval by the city would force them out.

Andrew Young of Athens-based Landmark Properties said the rest estate company is excited about the Flagstaff market and wants to construct two multistory buildings.

Residents said their trailers are too old to move and that the relocation money mentioned wouldn't stretch far enough.

Flagstaff Vice Mayor Carol Evans said the trailer park's residents are some of the most impoverished in the northern Arizona city.
