Developer: Change Zoning from Single-family to MH

CapeGazette VillageSoup informs MHProNews from Georgetown, Delaware Captain’s Way Development LLC has requested a zoning change for a 155-acre parcel of land from single-family site built to manufactured home community. Developer Pret Dyer, saying it is an opportunity for Sussex County to achieve its affordable housing quota, also stated he will donate 26 acres to the Nature Conservancy to serve as a buffer from other properties. A neighborhood resident, decrying the need for more manufactured housing, said a nearby MHC has 39 vacancies. Noting 25 percent of Sussex residents live in manufactured housing, and over 55 percent of them live on leased land, Preter said many local people cannot afford single-family housing but can afford MH.
