Liberty council expands non-manufactured home ordinance

Earlier this month, the Liberty City Council approved expanding the city’s non-manufactured home ordinance to include more than 300 acres located on the East Side of the city. City Manager Tom Warner told Liberty Council a developer- Mike Riley- owned 340 acres generally bounded by Beaumont Avenue on the south, Minglewood Road on the west, Country Club Drive on the east and the Mizell Lake Property on the north. Tom Warner said the developer currently received a final plat for 10 acres and was in the process of building a home on one of the lots. City Manager Tom Warner said once Mike Riley completes the construction of homes in the proposed subdivision, he then plans to develop another 75 acre tract of his property. The Liberty City Manager said Mike Riley requested city council expand the non –manufactured home ordinance to include his property and property surrounding his proposed area of development. Mr. Warner said there are a few manufactured homes located within the proposed no manufactured home expansion area, but those are considered to be legal non-conforming structures. That means those manufactured homes can continue inside the expanded restricted zone but can only be replaced one time in the future. Prior to voting on expanding the City of Liberty’s non-manufactured home area, Council members heard a brief presentation from Dave Markowitz, the manager of Clayton Homes in Liberty. Mr. Markowitz said he understood city residents not wanting a mobile home park facing their property, but felt the industry has come a long way in changing public perception about manufactured housing. Mr. Markowitz showed Liberty Council members pictures of the latest manufactured home models sold by his company. He pointed out these homes are approved by the U. S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and, in most cases, were indistinguishable from site built homes other than being more affordable. Ultimately, Liberty City Council voted unanimously to expand the city’s manufactured home restricted zone as requested by developer Mike Riley. The newly expanded non-manufactured home zone took effect on Friday.
