Regarding another story we covered April 16, 2012 from Mt. Vernon, Illinois concerning a proposed conditional use for siting MH in the town, the city council voted to prohibit manufactured housing from RM2 residential areas. The new ordinance endorses a conditional use provision that allows factory-built homes to be sited in RM2 zones providing certain ownership, permission, and time lines are met. According to what the Register-News tells MHProNews.com, the home cannot be older than 15 years, and the siting must be complete by year’s end.
