Maine Manufactured Home Community Expanding

July 27th, 2016

The new owner of one year, Connecticut Property Management LLC, has 21 acres, including a large wetlands area, and intends to use part of the property for boat storage—allowable, because the property is zoned General Purpose B.

City Planner Wayne Marshall said city staff will provide a plan showing the new sites that could be added, with the proposal going through a “sketch plan phase,” which is basically to create a dialogue between the Planning Board and the applicant. He says there has not been a new MHC proposal submitted in over 30 years.

City ordinances require each lot to be 6,500 sq. ft. with a minimum of 50 feet frontage for manufactured homes. The size of the lot is not suitable for a modular home according to the ordinance. The Planning Board will discuss the expansion at its next meeting. ##
