Retirement community orders grandchild out

SHARE Retirement community orders grandchild out

APACHE JUNCTION, Ariz. (AP) — Rory Coriell wants to keep living with his grandparents in their Arizona retirement community, but his age might get in the way.

The 16-year-old started living with his grandparents after Oregon Child Services sent him there. The agency stepped in because Coriell was running away from his adoptive father; his mother died of cancer in 1995.

Last week, Montessa at Gold Canyon gave Coriell and his grandparents the ultimatum: Vacate or find a new home for the teen.

The community requires that all residents of a dwelling be at least 18. Rules also require that at least one permanent resident be 55 or more.

"It's petty," Coriell said. "It's immature."
