Omland Court

New Look, New Name, and New Developments for Fosston Mobile Home Park


October 16, 2018


Fosston has had a mobile home park for decades, located on the west side of town, along Omland Avenue. The park now has a new name, Omland Court. The park design features two circular drives, with homes radiating outward, like spokes on a wheel, and another row of homes on the east side.


In the 1960’s and 1970’s the park was very well-maintained, but in the past several years, there has been a gradual decline. In an effort to turn things around, the City of Fosston purchased the property in July, and contracted Greater Minnesota Management (GMM) to manage the property for them.


Since then, several improvements have been made, most importantly, the removal of several blighted (vacant) homes. Other site improvements are either underway or being discussed. The site has many trees and includes a small, centrally located play space for children.


The City of Fosston is one of a handful of cities across the United States who are purchasing mobile home parks. Many of the parks established across the United States in the 1960’s and 70’s have fallen into poor condition. Cities like Fosston believe that mobile home parks are an important type of housing, because they provide an affordable option for home ownership.


Michelle Landsverk, economic development consultant for the City of Fosston is enthused about the improvements to the park. “This is an important part of the continuum of housing that the City of Fosston has to offer,” Landsverk said. “The site is lovely and has so many trees! I applaud the City for their decision to purchase the property and expect to see additional improvements in the next couple of years.”


In addition to sites where homes can be placed, there are three homes within Omland Court that are owned by the City of Fosston and which are available to lease. These are very new, high quality homes, constructed by Homark. A third option is for individuals who would prefer to purchase their own new home and place it within Omland Court. New, high-quality homes are available through Homark Homes, with several styles and options to choose from.
