Complete rebuild underway

Lazy Days gaining a new community septic system

BLUE RIVER: The Eugene-based Homes for Good housing agency has broken ground to completely rebuild the Lazy Days Mobile Home and RV Park and it's infrastructure “in a resilient and environmentally responsible manner. The park will provide community open space and amenities and manufactured, or modular housing options will be provided on the site.”

In December of 2021, Homes for Good purchased an 8-acre portion of the Lazy Days site, located on the north side of the 52000 block of McKenzie Hwy. Prior to the Holiday Farm Fire, the park housed 21 manufactured home sites and spaces for 15 RVs.

In coordination with Lane County, the project is targeted toward under-served populations that may benefit by increasing access to local housing,

The work now underway will create a community septic drainfield to replace the 13 to 14 existing smaller septic tanks that were in use before the fire. 20 new manufactured or modular homes will be located in the park, The design also includes 10 spaces for Tiny Homes or RVs as long-term rentals.

Initially, there was some concern that the site might need to connect to the Blue River Water District at a cost of up to $1.5 million. However, it now appears the new well will be sufficient (with possible holding tanks) to serve the park.

Another lot located across the highway was also part of the Lazy Days Mobile Home and RV Park but was not purchased by Homes for Good. Instead, the McKenzie River Trust has secured the riverbank parcel with plans to restore the site’s riparian habitat.
