Green Acres Home Park is a peaceful 24-pad affordable home community located on 6.30 acres on the outskirts of Ashmore, IL (Charleston–Mattoon Micropolitan Statistical Area.) The park was developed in 1978. The property is zoned commercial and the park is presently in compliance. The park is not located in a flood zone. The park has a husband/wife team that serve as the manager and maintenance man who live onsite.

The pads will accommodate 70 foot trailers. The park has one oversized 80 foot trailer that extends over a couple of feet each direction. There are three vacant trailers that either need to be removed or renovated (whatever suits your park model best). Of the 24-pads in the park, thirteen are occupied. All thirteen are TOH's averaging $300/month. There is a 40' x 28' shed on the property that the manager uses in exchange for payment. There are currently eight vacant pads. The rent for the TOH's has not been raised since 2020. The park utilizes utilizes month/month (TOH) leases. Currently none of the tenants are behind in rent. Tenants pay rent by money order at the present time which is collected by the park manager.

Green Acres Mobile Home Park is on city water. The park is currently using a lagoon but that is expected to be phased out within the next couple of years. The city has received a $5 million dollar grant to put in a public treatment system. The owner and the city are in talks to have the lagoon donated to the city for the water treatment plant which would be built right next to the mobile home park. The underground pipe material consists of a combination of plastic with PEX for the laterals. The electrical pedestals are 100 amps. The park has water, electric meters & gas meters to each pad. The tenant is direct billed by the provider for electric & gas, and back billed for water. The roads through the park are a combination of asphalt & gravel and 3/4 of the road is maintained by the city (up to lot #22). The tenants are responsible for mowing their own space. The park mows the empty pads and common spaces. The city takes care of snow removal (as needed).

The current owner of Green Acres MHP has owned the property for three years. During that time they have cleaned up the park by removing seven trailers. They have also added six trailers during that time. Several of the electrical pedestals have been updated. If they were to maintain ownership of the parks they would focus on these improvements:

•Work with the city to phase out the lagoon and get public sewer
•Continue to infill the park
