Daily-Times reports from Farmington, New Mexico, that in San Juan County, in the northwestern corner of the state, the county commissioners took another step towards regulating manufactured home communities. An ordinance was passed requiring developers to obtain a license from the community development department and pay a fee for building an MHC or RV community.“We’ve seen quite an uptick in the number of these developments throughout the county,” said Mike Stark, the county’s chief operations officer. “I think one of the reasons is that we have a large percentage of folks who are no longer able to meet the eligibility requirements for a loan for purchase of a house. They ultimately end up migrating to leased property.” A public hearing for a final vote by the commissioners is set for Dec. 6.
