Salisbury Patch informs MHProNews from Allentown, Pennsylvania the Salisbury Township has proposed zoning changes that would allow manufactured homes to be sited inside Waldheim Park, which is a privately-owned community of 80 Victorian cottages. Originally a summer retreat for the Evangelical Congregational Church, only nine people live there year around. The land is owned by the Waldheim Park Association and the homes are privately owned. Townships are require by state law to provide a mix of land use and housing types in areas designated medium-high residential, which would include HUD Code and Mod. Like many other jurisdictions, Salisbury Township has not revised its comprehensive land use and zoning plan in 20 years, but is now in the process of doing so. The consultant hired to overhaul the township’s zoning amendments says there are not many available areas of flat land suitable for MH.
