Box Elder wants to reshape the face of its community. One plan on their agenda is to transfer 600-800 trailer homes to a different part of town.

i. Naomi Jakober and Ashley and Matt Curtis play in front of the Douglas mobile home park and a nearby creek, which they call "The Club."

ii. Lollie Price waters vegetables in front of her trailer home at the Hillside mobile home park. Price, who has lived at Hillside for eight years, said she would be willing to move as long as her cost of living doesn’t increase. "I want to feel comfortable, and I want my kids to feel comfortable, like they are now,” she said.
