Landslide may displace dozens of NKY residents

Dozens could be displaced by landslide

HIGHLAND HEIGHTS, KY (FOX19) - A landslide could displace dozens of residents at a condominium complex in Campbell County.

Residents in building 19 at Highland Meadows Condominiums were recently notified that a contracted company suggested they all evacuate until the area is repaired.

Rentz Management oversees the complex and hired a company called Geotechnology to investigate the land movement.

Representatives with Rentz sent the following statement to FOX19, regarding "a naturally occurring underground" spring they say caused the land movement:

When Rentz Management was made aware of the landslide behind building 19, we advised the Highland Meadows Board of Directors to engage with a geotechnical engineering firm, which they promptly did.

Christina Albers has lived at her condo for 10 years. She says she doesn't want to move despite the recommendation from Geotechnology.

"I'm going to stay until I hear that the building itself has moved or there's more land movement," said Albers.

FOX19 reached out to Highland Heights city officials who say they are hoping to seek a disaster relief grant but are waiting for a final report from Rentz Management.
