The Bloomington (IL) Planning Commission recommended City Council approve a plan for a manufactured home community (MHC) to expand on an eight-acre site that was once part of the Southgate Estates Mobile Home Park. After a foreclosure in 2011, Southgate was split into two parcels, and the larger one became Cardinal Ridge, owned by Jay Oades, according to pantagraph.
Submitted by Robert Reuwert’s PMO Properties Manufactured Mobile Home Park, the eight acre site already has four MH on it with space for 30 additional homesites, as MHProNews has learned. The site plan has been pending while the two owners try to come to an agreement about storm water draining into Cardinal Ridge from PMO, and maintenance of storm sewers.
But Oades said his property cannot handle additional drainwater coming from PMO, and that residents already complain about standing water after a rainstorm. Duane Yockey, PMO’s engineer, said he thinks the backup is due to silt buildup on the Cardinal side. Oades has called for an engineering study to determine the possible impact of more drainage if PMO adds more homes. ##
