HUD Study on Manufactured Housing Discriminatory Zoning, Placement by Local Cities, Counties Requested


It will be recalled for the sake of new readers that the Daily Business News on MHProNews has been documenting cases of manufactured homes being limited, excluded, and/or discriminated against in zoning and placement practices by local jurisdictions for several years.

That is so, despite the wide body of evidence that has been amassed that debunks concerns that NIMBYites, special interests, and others use to exert such discriminatory efforts against federally regulated HUD Code manufactured homes.

It will also be noted that recently, after years of purported failures on the part of the Manufactured Housing Institute (MHI) to robustly and successfully address this growing threat, that the production-focused Manufactured Housing Association for Regulatory Reform (MHARR) voted in Tunica on March 27, 2018 to take up this cause themselves. See that, at this link here.

In an exclusive report, MHARR has notified MHProNews that they are directly addressing this matter with HUD and others.  Among their first steps?  They’ve met with officials in Washington, D.C. to obtain HUD sponsored research into this growing and troubling pattern of exclusionary zoning and placement challenges that foil the meaning of the legal phrase “enhanced preemption.”

You can read the full report at the MHARR website, linked above, via that text-image box.


The contest for growth vs. more manufactured housing industry stagnation is already on.

It will be recalled that it was MHARR, not MHI, that caused the removal of Pam Danner from her perch at HUD.  Who said? The Washington Post, in their report, learn more at the report linked from the text image box below.  MHI and others might duck, posture, and hide, but they can’t do so forever, so long as industry professionals hold them accountable for their purportedly routine failure to perform their duty in their own problematic claim to represent “all segments of factory-built housing.”
