Paradise Pines RV Park in northern California, which houses more than 90 low-income people, could soon be shut down because of failing state health and safety codes.
However, the owner says he has been working with Butte County Officials to comply.
Those living at the park are people of all ages and the owner of the park says if his property is shut down, tenants could start the New Year suffering from homelessness this winter.
