Minnesota’s temporary family health care housing law will allow a modular or manufactured home or recreational vehicle to be sited on the property of a relative, legal guardian or caregiver for up to one year, as MHProNews has learned from abcnewspapers. The law would allow a structure of up to 300 sq ft.
The legislature included a provision that allows a city to opt out of the measure providing the city council acts before Sept.1.
Blaine, Minn., on the northern outskirts of Minneapolis, took the option and voted July 14 to opt out of the law. “Essentially we’re talking about moving RVs into neighborhoods and setting them up as housing units,” Blaine Planning and Community Development Director Bryan Schafer said. “My understanding is most cities, at least the ones that are aware of this, are opting out.”
Blaine City Council member Dick Swanson says he understands the measure was driven by legislators in rural communities. The provision to opt out was raised by metro cities members.
As MHProNews reported Aug. 2, 2016, aging Baby Boomers will drive the need for Assisted Living homes that will allow seniors to age in place near loved ones. ##
