Editors note: In a follow up to our original story, Latonya Hager clarified that out of the subdivision, only 19 families remain to relocate. This includes one elderly couple that she states she is helping with their transition. Even though the leases were month to month, 30-day leases, they gave all remaining tenants at least 40 days. Although the subdivision has around 50 homes, only 19 families remain and they are doing what they can to help those people find new accomodations.
Residents in the Bluegrass Homes subdivision recently got notices that their month-to-month leases have been terminated by Stanley Properties LLC, the company that manages the properties next to the Bluegrass Army Depot. Bluegrass Homes subdivision is located on U.S. 421 just off U.S. 25 next to the entrance of the Bluegrass Army Depot. The subdivision land is owned by the Bluegrass Army Depot.
WBON-TV9 spoke with LaTonya Hager, the Managing Member of Stanley Properties LLC, and she explained that she had cancelled the lease agreement between the Bluegrass Army Depot and Stanley Properties LLC due to her personal health concerns. LaTonya had taken over running the company full-time after her mother, Donna Stanley, passed away in June 2021. The original lease was for 75 years, which has now expired. According to LaTonya Hager, after 70 plus years, the homes are just past their useful life and the decision to end the lease, unfortunately, leaves the current residents looking for other places to live. Many residents are upset with Stanley Properties LLC management and the 40-day notices they received and say they could have been given much more time to find alternative housing, but it truly is an unfortunate ending for the company and the residents of the Bluegrass Home subdivision, that consists of around 50 homes, mostly of low income and elderly residents. Bluegrass Army Depot owns the land where the homes are located.
The Public Affairs office at the Bluegrass Army Depot was contacted, and messages were left concerning the lease termination by Stanley Properties LLC. The Public Affairs office did not respond to our request for information.
