Residents of the Seal Beach Trailer Park moved a step closer to acquiring the mobile home property when the City Council approved Redevelopment Agency bonds for financing the purchase earlier this week. The homeowners association is applying for a state-funded loan so residents can come closer to owner Richard Hall's $7.6-million asking price for the low- to moderate-income trailer park. Since Hall rejected the Seal Beach Trailer Park Residents Assn.'s $6.

With real estate prices skyrocketing around them, the 125 tenants of the Seal Beach Trailer Park welcomed the news three years ago that a nonprofit housing corporation, with help from City Hall, was buying the complex and would maintain affordable rents. But now, control of the property is being contested in three lawsuits by nearly half the park's residents, who say they were promised that, in time, they would be owners of the park.

I watched our City Council throw out fact after painstaking fact when it unanimously concluded that the residents of the Seal Beach Trailer Park were not entitled to the same rights and laws enforced throughout the rest of Seal Beach and Surfside ("Residents Riled by Trailer Park Building Limits," March 3). Only the residents of the trailer park are not allowed to build homes higher than 15 feet if their neighbor has built a two-story structure first. Never mind that the Fire Department has determined that the two-story cabanas are safer than the existing one-story dwellings, or that the two-story homes enhance the aesthetic quality of the park.

Former Councilman Shawn Boyd pleaded guilty Friday to a felony conflict-of-interest charge that will bar him from ever again seeking public office. Boyd, 34, admitted hiding his financial relationship with Richard Hall, owner of the Seal Beach Trailer Park, who made a $4.5-million profit after the city financed the park's sale last year to a nonprofit group. The judge placed Boyd on three years' probation and fined him almost $50,000.

More than two months after the City Council purchased a secondhand trailer to replace Bob Lada's beat up unit, the 64-year-old veteran still sits and watches rain collect in buckets, his new home nowhere to be seen. Lada's plight demonstrates the battle going on between residents of the Seal Beach Trailer Park and owner Richard Hall.

Disgruntled residents of the Seal Beach Trailer Park, who want to be in control of their own destiny, were rejected Tuesday in their bid to buy the park for $6.4 million. Owner Richard Hall and the park's resident owners association have been battling over proposed rent increases for more than a year, nearly as long as Hall has owned the park, located close to the beach. Association President Frank Boychuck said Hall wants $8 million for the property, which the owner says he bought for $3.

Former Seal Beach Councilman Shawn Boyd is expected to plead guilty to a felony conflict-of-interest charge and pay a $25,000 state fine for voting on matters that benefited a business partner, according to documents filed Wednesday. Boyd, who lost his council seat in the March election, agreed to the terms in a stipulation deal he signed last month with the state Fair Political Practices Commission, according to state records.
