Zoning Changes on Tap for Manufactured Housing

A new proposal from the Columbus Junction (Iowa) Planning and Zoning Commission to the city council would create a manufactured housing (MH) district, and delete MH from R-2 and R-3 residential districts. According to muscatinejournal.com, current ordinances require any MH outside of a community to be placed on a permanent foundation and converted to real estate. The proposed map will be presented at the Oct. 9, 2013 public hearing. MHProNews understands before the changes can go into effect they must be read and passed three times by the city council.
