Restrictive Zoning of Manufactured Homes may be Lifted

September 26th, 2013 Comments off

Current zoning laws in Midland, Texas prevent updated manufactured housing (MH) from replacing dilapidated factory-built homes because the zoning has been changed since the homes were sited. 1F3 zoning in certain areas only allows for stick-built homes in certain areas. As cbs7kosa.com tells MHProNews, the city says up to 28 homes have been placed outside of zoning compliance. “There really is a sense of harshness that traps citizens, who can’t afford to build a stick home but want to upgrade,” said City Council Member John Love. The city is now contemplating changing the zoning to a Planned District Housing Development which would allow modular homes up to ten years old to be sited.
