UMH Properties, Inc. is in the final stages of extensively rebuilding the Memphis Blues manufactured home community, including re-engineered flood protection, at the former site of the Memphis Mobile Community (MMC), severely damaged by flooding. The new community is gated, and features a playground and 24-hour on-site management, as MHProNews has learned from marcellus.
The community site was refilled during the rebuild, and raised well above the flood plane. Additionally, new streets, utilities, security fence, office and other amenities have been included in the reconstruction, as well as installation of manufactured homes compliant with the city’s zoning ordinances which provide added flood protection.
The community is scheduled to re-open in June, 2016.
UMH is a real estate investment trust (REIT) that owns and operates 98 MHCs comprised of 17,800 developed home sites. ##
