Dinsmore said that she and some of the other residents spoke with several groups looking for legal advice, including University at Buffalo law students, and explored different options that would allow them to keep their homes.
But those efforts fell short because too many people fled the park scared by the uncertainties, she said.
In June the park offices were fire bombed. Police have made no arrests, but continue to investigate the incident.
"Those that left, left out of fear," Dinsmore said.
For now, Dinsmore plans to stay in her home and wait out the legal process, she said.
"We'll stay right here and see what happens," Dinsmore said. "Doors open and close all the time."
