Sunrise Manufactured Home Community will see Upgrades without RVs

October 23rd, 2014 Comments off

liberty_homes__creditAccording to sidneyherald,  Robert Emery’s application to update his Sunrise Mobile Home Park in Richland County, Montana has been approved by the Richland County Commissioners.

Recreational vehicles (RVs) will be banned from the community which will have 19 manufactured homes with 20 feet between each unit, a turnaround area for emergency vehicles, identification signs and sufficient lighting for public safety.

While Emery had some Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) issues he needed to address, he also wanted to take advantage of new legislation dealing with owning buildings on his own property that he could then lease. Electrical outlets previously used by RVs would be for electric cars and semi trucks.

MHProNews  has learned the commissioners have given Emery two years to complete the updates. ##
