Campus Habitat pulls signs off building

CARBONDALE, IL (KFVS) - Just one day after failing to show at a hearing with Carbondale City leaders on Monday afternoon. Now Campus Habitat pulls all of its signs and banners off their building at 820 West Freeman Street.

That's the same building that the company was to have filed an action plan on how they were going to fix all the problems in the building and bring it back into compliance.

But, on Tuesday afternoon workers were instead cutting and ripping down all Campus Habitat signs and removing anything that had the company's logo on it from the property.

Residents stood in bewilderment trying to figure out what was going on. And say they are getting no answers from the property manager.

"That's why I was concerned that maybe Campus Habitat is going to get rid of the building," said Chris Davis.

"And we're going to end up out in the streets and homeless because I don't know what to do, they won't tell us anything about what is going on."

For some residents it was baffling to see all the signs being removed and security vehicles for Campus Habitat being pulled away from the building. And they were wondering who and what would be next to have to go.

"I don't know we don't have any information. We have no preparation to look for another apartment," said Eddy Junarsin. 

"And for myself I have a wife and a baby, I may need longer to look for a new apartment."

Some residents say it very difficult to find a similar place to live, at the price they pay for their Campus Habitat apartment.

"It's going to be hard for me because I am on a fixed income. And all I want are some answers," said Davis.

He wasn't alone several of the residents at 820 West Freeman wanted some answers.

Calls to the company's executive vice president of operations and it's regional manager were not returned as of Tuesday evening.
