Following up on a story we posted yesterday, July 10, yourdailyjournal reports the Rockingham (North Carolina) City Council denied a request from Charles Seago to rezone land from business to residential so he could site four additional manufactured homes on the property on which he already has five MH. Although the city’s planning board supported the request, the city council, noting the property is adjacent to Interstate 74, said they had invested $1.1 million in water and sewer infrastructure to encourage industrial and business development at all four sides of the interchange. Mr. Seago responded that would be good for him because his land would be more valuable, but commercial development is not now happening. However, MHProNews has learned, the council insisted on protecting their investment, saying they must plan for future commercial development.
