Zoning Restrictions Applied to Mobile Homes


Author #1


It is the thesis of this paper that a municipality may not prevent expansion of an existing mobile home park (in the absence of a clear showing that to do so is necessary to promote the public health, safety, or welfare) by excluding mobile home parks from the zoning resolution, and through statutory limitations on the expansion of nonconforming uses. After examining treatment by the courts of regulating and excluding mobile home parks, several possible approaches will be shown for the mobile home park developer to use in overcoming these zoning restrictions.
