Modular Homes Prompt Concern

Following up on an article we ran Nov. 21, 2011 about the May 22 tornado that wiped out one-third of Joplin, Missouri’s housing, KOAMTV tells some residents are up in arms about three modular homes moving into a neighborhood of traditional homes. The neighbors are concerned the units, built by Clayton Homes, will undermine property values. Noting the city approved the permit for the units in November, Joplin’s Assistant Public Works Director Jack Schaller says, “Pursuant to our code, they’re allowable housing structures to go in there.” Carl Hill, Director of Marketing for Clayton, says there is no evidence that modular homes reduce nearby property values. City officials have assured residents periodic inspections will guarantee compliance with city codes.
