SYLVAN BEACH, N.Y. -- Residents of the Mariner's Landing Mobile Home Park in Sylvan Beach are speaking out. They received a letter on Monday from the Oneida Indian Nation stating they need to vacate the property by October 1.

They say it’s hard to afford moving everything in such a short amount of time.

Some people live at the trailer year round, and others enjoy the water seasonally – either way they call Mariner’s Landing home, but that’s all about to change.

Joel Barkin, vice president of communications, Oneida Indian Nation released a statement saying:

"The Oneida Indian Nation is redeveloping the land around its marina Mariner’s Landing, which includes the mobile home park. The redevelopment will increase accessibility to the marina and allow for a greater number of people to utilize and enjoy the location. Recognizing the disruption for all of mariner’s landing’s month-to-month renters, the timeline to implement this plan was delayed in order to give tenants six months to make new arrangements. The final month of rent was also waived for each of the tenants. More details about the redevelopment will be announced in the coming months."

While people understand it’s a business decision, they are more upset with the lack of sympathy for their situation.
