Residents Want to Repeal Ordinance

August 2nd, 2012

KTBS reports from Jefferson, Texas in the northeast corner of the state across the line from Shreveport, Louisiana an ordinance banning manufactured housing from the historic area of the city is being opposed by some residents. MHProNews has learned over 300 Jefferson citizens have signed a petition to present to the city council for repeal of the ordinance, saying they understand the importance of the historic area but the need for affordable housing outweighs history. Debra Jordan, who helped gather the signatures, says, “We are a rural area, we’re not a major city and we see no problem with bringing in manufactured housing in designated areas such as this.”
