Plymouth's Comprehensive Plan Language Regarding Manufactured Housing

"Nine percent of the housing in Arden Hills is manufactured/mobile homes compared to a regional average of just 1.6 percent" (2-7). "Manufactured Housing (MH) – includes manufactured and mobile homes in specialized parks" (6-4). "6.4.6 Manufactured Home Community The Arden Manor neighborhood has been identified as an important community and the primary supply of affordable housing options in the City. Bounded by Interstate 35W, Highway 96, and Highway 10, the neighborhood is facing pressure from adjacent highways and land uses. Although the 1998 Comprehensive Plan identified this area for potential redevelopment into nonresidential uses, the City anticipates this property will remain as a medium density residential use for the foreseeable future. Although complete impacts are not yet known, potential changes to Highways 10 and 96 may impact the manufactured home community. The City is currently in the process of reviewing road design proposals for this area" (6-10). "In 2007, there were 285 units in the Arden Manor manufactured home community and approximately 80 percent of the units were owner occupied" (7-7). "Water use: D& H Enterprises (Arden Manor Manufactured Home Community) 21,860,800 5%" (APPENDIX D PG 3). "High density residential (HDR) – apartment and townhome land use category providing for densities of up to twelve units per acre. Mobile homes are also included in this category" (6-3).

Blaine's Comprehensive Plan Language Regarding Manufactured Housing:

"Although detached, single-family homes are the most prevalent type of housing in Blaine (66%), other significant types of housing include townhomes (11%) and mobile homes (15%). The concentration of mobile homes in Blaine is noteworthy because less than two percent of all homes metro-wide are mobile homes and Blaine has the largest supply of manufactured housing parks in the state" (3-12). SEE LAND USE PLANNING TABLE: no change in MH from 2008 to 2030 (5-26). "Small private treatment plants are located throughout the metropolitan area serving such developments as individual industries, mobile home parks, and other urban type uses. The Council will not provide financial support to assist communities if these systems fail" (Water system statement - 5). "Manufactured Loan Fund – income qualifying residents may borrow up to $7,500 to fixup manufactured homes" (3-24). "14. The City will support an effort to preserve existing affordable housing units including manufactured home parks and subsidized apartments and townhome complexes" (3-25).

Burnsville's Comprehensive Plan Language Regarding Manufactured Housing:

"Medium Density Residential – This land use classification includes attached housing (townhomes, small apartment buildings), small lot detached townhomes and manufactured homes (mobile homes) within the three existing manufactured home parks (Camelot, Rambush, and Sunny Acres). Lands within this category are served with municipal utilities. Net residential densities from 4 to 8.7 units per acre are allowed (mobile home park net residential density is 8.47 units per acre)." "3.2.2 Manufactured Homes Burnsville is home to three manufactured/mobile home parks, with a total of 766 lots. People own their unit but do not own the underlying land and as such, they can be faced with enormous relocation costs if the park owner sells the park for another use. To protect mobile/manufactured housing park residents, the Burnsville City Council enacted an ordinance that requires the owner and/or developer to pay reasonable relocation costs to the residents. The city is not aware of any planned park closures. In 2004 the city considered policy changes in an effort to ensure mobile/manufactured homes remain in good condition and continue to be a valued style of housing for community residents. A study was conducted by Decision Resources, LTD via telephone interviews of 267 owners and renters of mobile/manufactured homes. The study found that 97% own and 3% rent their manufactured/mobile home unit. Most desired the affordability of the mobile/manufactured home and saw themselves continuing their residency. Eighty-five percent of residents living in the mobile/manufactured home parks cited no problems with their home. The study included demographic information on the survey respondents including data on household tenure, income, education and employment." (IV-5,6). "Affordable owner occupied housing is available in Burnsville in the form of single-family detached units, two-family homes, townhouses and mobile/manufactured housing." (IV-23).

Dayton's Comprehensive Plan Language Regarding Manufactured Housing:

"CURRENT HOUSING As of 2007, Dayton had 1,768 single-family homes and 243 manufactured homes, for a total of 2,011 units. This total is much less then the City’s neighbors due to the fact the City will not have urban services (municipal water and sewer) until 2008, with the exception of areas north of Diamond Lake (served by Rogers) and portions of the Historic Village in northwest Dayton (served by Otsego). Metropolitan interceptors are now in place and Dayton has adopted a Sanitary Sewer Phasing Plan that will ultimately bring municipal services to all of Dayton. Table 3.1 – Year Built illustrates the City’s housing unit growth dating from pre-1939 to the year 2000. This data is from the 2000 Census which excludes the more recent construction years. As a result, the table total is different from the City’s total housing units of 2,011 (including mobile homes). The table demonstrates the relative slow pace at which Dayton has developed during the years prior to municipal services" (3-2). "MANUFACTURED HOMES Dayton contains one manufactured home park (Dayton Park Properties) located at the southwestern portion of the City just north of CSAH 81. This property contains 243 homes. As with other parks in the metropolitan area, this manufactured home community serves a vital demand for affordable housing. Residents typically own their home but not the land. Units are more affordable than smaller single-family homes or townhomes where land is a portion of the housing cost. Currently, Dayton Park operates on an aging community septic system. Due to the system’s age and the possibility of failure, it is anticipated that water and sewer will be expanded to the park in the near future" (3-3). "Rural Residential: Residential purposes including mostly one-family homes and manufactured homes may include some two-family homes and land used for agricultural purposes. Single Family Residential: Residential purposes including mostly one-family homes and manufactured homes. May include some two-family homes and open space within or adjacent to or related to a residential development. Mobile Home Park: This area consists of manufactured homes within Dayton." (4-5) "RESIDENTIAL LAND USE CATEGORIES Currently Dayton’s residential land use consists of single-family residential, multi-family residential, mobile home park, and rural residential uses. These land uses currently account for approximately 18% of the City’s total net area. However, this figure is misleading as density in rural residential areas is very low. Therefore, this land use category accounts for a significant area of the community but relatively few housing units" (4-17).

Plymouth's Comprehensive Plan Language Regarding Manufactured Housing

“Mobile Home Units, 397, Percentage of Total 3.42” (5-46). “The 2007 housing condition survey shows that 85% of Fridley residential properties rank as being in excellent condition. Only 11% were ranked in good condition, only 4% in fair condition, and less than 1% in poor condition. This ranking included all housing types except manufactured homes, which were not evaluated” (5-48). “Whereas in 1998, 69 percent of Fridley’s single family housing stock was valued under $100,000, less than eight percent is now, and this is including the values of 397 manufactured homes, which appear to have been omitted from the 1998 study. Further, in 1998, only two tenths of one percent of Fridley’s homes were valued over $250,000. Now, nearly 13 percent are valued that high” (5-49). “Assessors data for 1998 indicated a mean value of approximately $94,000 for all single-family homes that have been assigned a state tax code of homestead (1A), partial-homestead (.51A, .51AB, .51B), blind homestead (1B) and non-homestead single family homes (4BB). In 2006, the median home value for the same classifications was $209,116, not including manufactured homes. The mean value is $199,348 if manufactured homes are included, but for comparison purposes, the higher number should be used as 1998 data did not include manufactured homes. The average Fridley home sale price in 2006, according to the Minneapolis Association of Realtors, was $218,337.” (5-50). “There is a continued long-term (four decades) trend of a reduction in the percentage of owner-occupied housing. If we eliminate the inclusion of manufactured homes in Table 5.4, owner-occupied is really down to 63% and rental is up to 37%” (5-63). “The City of Fridley has one private water service within its limits, which serves a private mobile home park. It is anticipated that the City of Fridley will begin to provide service to these 365 customers between 2010 and 2020” (11-181). “R-4 District Allowed principal use includes: Mobile Home Park Districts” (14-215).

Hastings' Comprehensive Plan Language Regarding Manufactured Housing:

Manufactured Housing Park Units/Acre 6; Per Unit: 3; Flow Per: 100 Flow/Acre 1,800 “Land uses allowed in the residential zoning districts: A range of detached and attached housing types are allowed in six districts, including a manufactured housing district” (4-22). “Plans for potential annexation areas depicted in the 1982 Comprehensive Plan were to increase the area of the City by 1,200 acres by 2000. Until 1993, when the Comprehensive Plan update was adopted, the City had annexed only 410 acres from Marshan Township (located to the south of the City). These included 382 acres located south of 31st Street East between the Three River Mobile Homes Park and TH 61 for the County Crossroads and residential development, and 28 acres to the west between Cannon Street and Leroy Avenue for residential development” (2-24). “Single Family Housing Generally, the single family residential category is defined as detached homes (including manufactured homes) located on lots of five acres or less and served by municipal sanitary sewer and water services. In 2006, single-family residential land uses (1,887 acres) comprised nearly 25 percent of the total land area of the city (7,658 acres)” (2-20). “R-6 – Manufactured Home Residence – Primary Use: One Family Minimum Lot Size: 2,500 sq. ft. “Mid-Density Housing Small-lot detached houses, duplexes, townhouses. 4-, 6- and 8-unit buildings with individual exterior entrances. The density is expected to be in the range of 5 to 22 dwelling units per acre with a maximum average of 8. Includes places of worship.

Inver Grove Heights' Comprehensive Plan Language Regarding Manufactured Housing

“Existing connections to Eagan are primarily the mobile home park and some residential development in the vicinity of Cliff Road. There is a small overlap in the Eagan and Inver Grove Heights service areas. While Eagan or Inver Grove Heights could serve the area south of Highway 55 and north of the mobile home park with water, it is not the City of Inver Grove Heights practice to use the City of Eagan for water service” (8-6). “Multi-Family/Mobile Homes The first 2,000 gallons or less $6.10 per unit/per month 2,001-7,000 gallons $2.12 per 1,000 7,001-13,000 gallons $2.45 per 1,000 13,001 and more gallons $2.64 per 1,000 The minimum charge per unit per month shall be $6.10” (8-21). ““R-4” Mobile Home Park District 1 unit per 5,000 sq. ft. 5,000 sq. ft. per unit” (11-7). “Urban Single Family Residential & Manufactured Homes – Existing residential uses include single-family, detached housing, which on the basis of land consumption, is the dominant land use category in the community. Multi-Family Residential – Multi-Family Residential includes all categories of attached housing such as apartments, condominiums, townhomes, duplexes, triplexes, quadhomes, senior housing, and manufactured housing.” (2-2). “Single Family/ Manufactured Homes 145 - 145 1%” (TABLE 2-1).

Lake Elmo's Comprehensive Plan Language Regarding Manufactured Housing:

Chapter IV. Housing Element 1. Maintain and improve the condition of the Cimarron Manufactured Home park; facilitative future access to the regional sewer and water systems when these services are available to the park. 2. Enforce the existing housing maintenance requirements for residential properties within the City. 3. Provide for a mix of housing types and densities within the sewered development areas. Promote mix-used housing opportunities where appropriate in the Village planning area. 4. Incorporate connections to transportation facilities and jobs as part of new development proposals. 5. Review the Zoning and Subdivision Ordinances to ensure that there are not any impediments to affordable housing. 6. Ensure that all new housing, including higher density developments, adheres to the highest possible standards of design and construction” (VII-4). “(6) Travel trailers, travel vehicles, and manufactured homes are prohibited in the flood plain district” (5-11). “Regarding the existing stock of housing that remains affordable, Lake Elmo does have some housing that meets the Metropolitan Council’s standards of affordability. According to the 2011 Met Council standards, a family making 60% of the area median income ($50,340) can afford the purchase of a home valued at $171,500 or less. Additionally, the 2011 Met Council affordability standards deem a two-bedroom rental unit at $1,134/month or less as affordable. Conducting an analysis of the existing housing stock in Lake Elmo reveals that there are 567 such properties that are affordable by the Met Council standards, which equates to 20.4% of the occupied housing units in the city. These properties can be found in Map 4-1. Four hundred-thirty (or just over 76% of the City’s affordable units) are found in the Cimarron Manufactured Home Park where there is a mix of affordable ownership and rental opportunities. The remaining 137 affordable owner-occupied housing units are mostly located in the Western portion of Lake Elmo near County Road 6, as well as within the Old Village” (4-4). “Urban Medium Density – This category current defines areas within Lake Elmo dedicated to manufactured home parks. The Cimarron development is currently the only such area within Lake Elmo” (3-6). “The existing units in the Cimarron manufactured home park will be served by regional sewer between 2020 and 2030. This flow is included in the forecasts. Cimarron will need to install a lift station in order to be served by regional sewer. The existing homes and businesses in the Village Planning Area of Lake Elmo are assumed to be served by regional sewer between 2013 and 2030. That flow has also been included in the forecasts” (6-1). “Cimarron Manufactured Home Park operates and maintains a packaged treatment plant with a capacity of 0.15 MGD. There is a State permit for this facility” (6-6).

Lakeville's Comprehensive Plan Language Regarding Manufactured Housing

“Manufactured housing is also allowed as a conditional use within residential zoning districts allowing multiple family dwelling units as required by State Statute subject to specific minimum lot requirements and setbacks. Ardmore, Country View and North Creek manufactured home parks are all properly zoned RSMH, Residential Single Family – Mobile Home Park District. Ardmore and Country View are fully developed whereas North Creek has additional vacant land for future expansion. Future expansion of North Creek and continued operation of Ardmore and Country View manufactured home parks is guided by the 2030 Land Use Plan to continue and will be regulated by the RSMH District. The Queen Anne and Connelly manufactured home parks located along the I-35 corridor exist as legal non-conforming land uses with regard to both use and design. The location of these two manufactured home parks within one of Lakeville’s primary commercial nodes at I-35 and CSAH 50 creates potential land use compatibility issues, while the individual layouts of each site create public health safety concerns with regards to emergency access. The 2030 Land Use Plan continues to guide both the Queen Anne and Connelly parks for future redevelopment as office park and commercial land uses respectively. As non-conforming uses, these manufactured home parks can continue to exist at the same size as they exist today, but no expansion will be permitted. Furthermore, a proposal to redevelop the Queen Anne or Connelly mobile home parks in the future with uses consistent with the 2030 Land Use Plan would be anticipated to be a privately initiated effort and not a the result of direct action by the City of Lakeville” (97). “City of Lakeville 2008 Existing Land Use Manufactured Housing Acres 252.41 Percent 1.0% … Man. Housing 997 252 6 0 0 0 246 4.1” (78). “Manufactured housing 977 5.2%” (91). “Promoting continued maintenance of existing single family dwellings, townhouses, multiple family units and manufactured housing aids in meeting Lakeville’s affordable housing goals” (92). “Land Use Manufactured Home Park Density 4.0 to 7.0 du/ac. Allowed uses Manufactured home dwelling units” (95). “There are five manufactured home parks in different areas of Lakeville. Manufactured housing is an important component of the community’s housing supply with respect to affordability. The Zoning Ordinance was updated in 1994 and 2000 to address regulations for the various developments in relation to State Building Code definitions and nomenclature, design standards regarding individual lot size and structure setbacks to allow for larger house styles, establishment of accessory building, outdoor storage and fence regulations and design standards for utility connections, internal driveway design, guest parking, and landscaping. ” (97). “2030 Land Use: Manufactured Homes 197.29 0.8% 197.29 0.8% 197.29 0.8% 197.29 0.8% (105)” “Connelly Manufactured Home Park exists as a non-conforming use and the 2030 Land Use Plan anticipates its future redevelopment for commercial uses … Queen Anne Manufactured Home Park is planned for future redevelopment as an Office Park land use based on proximity and access to I-35 at CSAH 50.” (109). “Continued development of the North Creek Manufactured Home Park shall occur in a manner consistent with the performance standards established by the Zoning Ordinance” (159). “RSMH, Single Family Manufactured Home Park District. The RSMH District is a separate district with performance standards for manufactured home parks. Allowed uses include single family dwellings and manufactured home parks. The density allowed in the RSMH District is less than six dwelling units per acre. The minimum lot requirements of the RS-4 District apply to all single family development. For manufactured home parks established after January 1, 1995, the minimum park area is five acres. Individual home sites within the park must have a minimum width of 65 feet and minimum depth of 120 feet” (174).

Little Canada's Comprehensive Plan Language Regarding Manufactured Housing:

“Little Canada’s long history has lead to a complex pattern of development which consists of converted lake cabins, large lake homes, mobile home parks, low-density residential neighborhoods, apartment and condominium complexes, large and small industrial areas, small commercial developments and designated park and open space areas” (2). “This neighborhood consists primarily of single family homes and is virtually fully developed. The only significant vacant developable property sits between Twin Lake Boulevard and the Vadnais Heights municipal boundary. Abutting this property to the north in Vadnais Heights is the Five Star Mobile Home community. The land use plan designates this property for low density residential. Medium density residential may be appropriate as a transitional land use between the lower densities to the south and the mobile home park” (22). “The southeast corner of the community is dominated by commercial uses along Rice Street, including revitalized commercial areas near the Rice Street/TH 36 interchange, and institutional uses including a school property and the corporate campus site for St. Jude Medical. There is a limited amount of residential use in this district, including a small twin home development, and a mobile home community which is zoned for eventual commercial uses. With the ongoing development of the St. Jude campus, this area is also fully developed” (26). “These land use categories are implemented by the City’s five residential zoning districts: Single Family Residential (R-1), Medium Density Residential (R-2), High Density Residential (R-3), Mobile Home Park (R-4) and Residential-Business (R-B)” (38).

Maplewood's Comprehensive Plan Language Regarding Manufactured Housing:

“Communities must plan to accommodate lifecycle and affordable housing. Lifecycle housing refers to the mix of housing types that meet the housing demands of individuals and families throughout their lives, such as single family detached, townhomes, condominiums, manufactured housing, apartments, and senior housing” (1-4). “Table 4.1 Housing Units by Type, 2000 Manufactured Housing 783 5.6%. Multi-family housing consists of 33.1 percent of the City’s housing stock and manufactured housing consists of 5.6 percent. ” (4-3). “There is a diversity of styles and price ranges in the homes in Maplewood. Older homes on smaller lots provide opportunities for first-time buyers in the Western Hills, Parkside and Gladstone neighborhoods. Opportunities for low- and moderate- income households are available in manufactured home parks and in a variety of types and locations of multiple dwellings. The move-up housing market is strong with these choices available throughout the City. Buyers can find more expensive housing in the Hillside, Vista Hills, Highwood and Kohlman Lake neighborhoods.”(4-4). “Medium Density Residential (6.1 – 10.0 units per net acre) The City intends the Medium Density Residential land use for moderately higher densities ranging from 6.1 to 10.0 units per net acre. Housing types in this land use category would typically include lower density attached housing, manufactured housing and higher density single family detached housing units.” (5-15).

Mounds View's Comprehensive Plan Language Regarding Manufactured Housing

“MHP: Mobile/Manufactured Home Park: Land under single ownership that has been planned and improved for the placement of mobile/manufactured housing for dwelling purposes; or land that has been planned, improved and subdivided for the placement of mobile/manufactured housing for dwelling purposes” (3-19). “TABLE 2 Large [water] Volume Users - List the top 10 largest users; Customer, Gallons per year, % of total annual use; Towns Edge Terrace Mobile Home Park 17.61 3.5% Mounds View Mobile Home Park 10.64 2.1% Colonial Village Mobile Home Park 9.60 1.9%” (3). “In addition, the City should consider the current Townsedge Terrace Manufactured Home Park and the adjacent Skyline Motel site along Old Highway 8 as possible sites for future industrial expansion.” (3-25). “Manufactured Homes (MH) Housing Units Per Acre: Min 1.0 Max 8.8 2000 71.5 2010 71.5 2015 71.5 2020 71.5 2025 71.5 2030 37.2 Change -34.3” (3-27). “TABLE 12: Total Number and Percent of Dwelling Units by Type. Manufactured Homes Homestead 508 Non-homestead 77 Total 585 Percentage11%” (4-7). “There are 5,267 dwelling units in Mounds View, with 1,601 units being rental housing (2008). The majority of Mounds View’s housing stock is owner-occupied single-family dwellings (52%). Apartments make up 29% of the housing stock. Manufactured homes comprise 11% of the total dwelling units, which exceeds the overall Ramsey County percentage of 3%. Overall, 70% of the housing in Mounds View is owner-occupied while 30% is rental” (4-7). “Redevelopment possibilities include manufactured home parks and single-family lots adjacent to commercial and high-density residential properties. Project costs, land assembly, infrastructure needs, financing and other factors can complicate redevelopment projects.” (4-16). “Mounds View Manufactured Housing Program offers loans” (4-23). “R-5, Manufactured Home: The purpose of this district is to provide for the planned regulation of manufactured homes. Such homes are grouped together due to their particular space requirements, construction and style” (9-10).

New Brighton's Comprehensive Plan Language Regarding Manufactured Housing:

“Medium-Density Residential. Medium-density residential areas are intended to accommodate densities in the range of 6 to 12-units per acre including such housing types as attached and detached townhomes, rowhouses, two-family dwellings, manufactured housing and apartments. These are primarily infill areas where medium-density housing already exists and more can be anticipated. The intent will be to make these areas integral parts of the neighborhood rather than edges or buffers to it” (5-8). “On the other hand, New Brighton has a total of 362-manufactured home units, which comprise a total of 47-acres located in two manufactured home parks. The existing density for manufactured housing is 7.7 units per acre” (5-1). “Policies The City’s policies for places to live are to: 1. Maintain the current mix of single-family and multi-family housing over the next 20-years. 2. Integrate, wherever possible, places to live, work and shop particularly within the Old Highway 8 corridor. 3. Mix densities and housing types within the Old Highway 8 corridor in an effort to improve housing diversity. 4. Ensure that infill development (filling in areas surrounded by existing housing) is compatible in architectural character and scale with the adjacent housing. 5. Employ a scattered site approach to affordable and group housing rather than concentrating them in one or few locations. 6. Continue to actively enforce housing maintenance code requirements. 7. Create opportunities for reinvestment in the existing housing stock in cooperation with Ramsey County” (5-9). “Housing As demonstrated in the table below, nearly 64 percent of the housing stock within the City of New Brighton is single family residential, whether it be detached or attached housing. Multiple family residential housing (10+units) makes up 29.5 percent of the housing stock. The remainder includes manufactured housing at 3.6 percent, and townhomes (2-9 units at 3.1 percent.) Table 3 - 4 Housing Types Manufactured Housing Units 334 Percent 3.6%” (3-6). “New Brighton's housing stock is primarily single family residential (64 percent) and multiple residential (29.5 percent). The remainder includes manufactured housing (3.6 percent) and townhomes (3.1 percent)… New Brighton's labor force is predominately management, professional and related occupations (43.5 percent) and sales and office (29 percent). The median family income in New Brighton is above the median family income for communities in the region. New Brighton's median household income is also among the highest of these same communities. The percentages of low income (or below poverty) New Brighton households falls in the middle when compared to surrounding communities and lower than Ramsey County as a whole.” (3-26). “Mobile Homes acres 47 percent of total 1” (5-3). “Table 5 - 3 Comparison of Existing (2008) to Future (2030) Land Use: Mobile Homes 2008 Acres 47 % 1 2030 Acres NA % 0” (5-6). “Table 6 - 1 Housing Units by Type (2008) Mobile Home Park Total Units 364 Percent of Total 3.9% Percent Owner Occupied 80.8%.

St. Anthony's Comprehensive Plan Language Regarding Manufactured Housing:

“The northern part of the study area is developed with a lumber yard and a used auto facility. Land uses west of CR 69 include industrial development and a manufactured housing park” (3-8). “In looking at these land use features, an issue that must be addressed in the future is the existence of two manufactured housing parks. The larger manufactured housing park sits west of TH 169 in an area that is primarily designated for future industrial growth. As an interim use, it is anticipated that this manufactured housing park will continue to exist; however, long range plans should anticipate its future redevelopment and the relocation. A smaller manufactured housing park exists east of TH 169. This area is also identified for either commercial or industrial land use. Again, the manufactured housing park is likely to remain as a long term interim use until such time as redevelopment is possible. However, the ultimate plans for this district suggest that this manufactured housing neighborhood is not an appropriate or compatible use with the more intense commercial and industrial land uses that are proposed” (3-10). “In looking at the proposed commercial areas, the City should focus on land uses that will complement the existing in-place commercial businesses. Two areas of specific concern in this vicinity is the existing manufactured housing park (Valley Haven) located north of First Avenue and immediately west of Dangerfield’s Restaurant and the automobile dealership south of First Avenue. The manufactured housing park is in a state of decline. The structures are showing deterioration and the grounds are not well maintained. The overall impact of the manufactured housing park’s existence is a negative impact on the surrounding commercial uses. The future relocation of the manufactured housing park will be essential for the future success of this commercial area” (Draft Section 3). “Examine opportunities for the relocation and redevelopment of the manufactured housing park located north of First Avenue and west of Dangerfield’s Restaurant” (3-24).“In addition, since future growth may occur in areas that are currently in adjacent Jackson Township, which is currently home to a number of manufactured housing parks (Bonnevista Terrace, Mobile Manor, and Jackson Heights), the City will, at the time of annexation, need to evaluate the role of housing in the overall housing mix for the City” (10-1). “Of the six potential corridors studied in the DEIS, five would impact existing manufactured housing parks on one or both sides of the Minnesota River. None of these parks are currently within the City of Shakopee. The easterly alignments would impact the largest number of homes in these parks. Given that funding for the new river crossing is not expected to be available for the next twenty (20) to thirty (30) years, the City (as well as Scott County) requested that MNDOT and the Metropolitan Council join with it and with the residents of these parks to identify strategies that would provide either minimize the impacts on these residents or provide them with like housing alternatives in the future.” (10-4).

St. Anthony's Comprehensive Plan Language Regarding Manufactured Housing:

“Consider the long-term redevelopment of the Lowry Grove Mobile Home Park into new housing at a medium density” (1-7). “Housing •Equal percentage of vacant (or occupied) housing units •Slightly lower rate of the total housing stock being owner-occupied. •Higher percentage of the housing stock in multi-family buildings •Slightly lower percentage of owner-occupied housing units Higher percentage of rental housing. •Older housing stock, on average (median year built 1966 vs. 1971•Approximately equal median value of owner-occupied housing o Median mobile home value is lower.” (1-9). See “Table 1-2 Housing Data (1-11) and Table 2-2 Housing Composition” (2-10). “The City’s forecast was prepared using figures for the number of housing units approved in Silver Lake Village since 2000 (a total of 798) plus an estimate of additional net new housing units gained through redevelopment of St. Anthony Shopping Center and Lowry Grove Mobile Home Park (790)” (1-12). “What should the City do, if anything, to continue to improve conditions and appearances in the Kenzie Terrace corridor, including the Lowry Grove Mobile Home Park, the St. Anthony Shopping Center and the road itself. Is the Lowry Grove Mobile Home Park an appropriate land use for the long-term future? If redevelopment of that site occurs, what should the City do, if anything, to help ensure that the residents are resettled into housing that is affordable and decent?” (2-8). “The Lowry Grove mobile home park is the one major instance of aged and deteriorated housing in St. Anthony. However, it is also the major source of affordable housing for population with incomes less than 50 percent of the community median” (2-11). “The only areas of housing in the city that might be considered substandard are the Lowry Grove mobile home park and a pocket of townhouses along the north side of 39th Avenue east of Silver Lake Road” (2-14). “Lowry Grove Mobile Home Park. The mobile home park was opened in the 1940s and now has nearly 100 mobile homes and several seasonal recreational vehicles. The mature trees give it an established and comfortable appearance. The mobile homes themselves are a component of the city’s stock of affordable housing, and many of the residents have lived in this location for decades; some are elderly. Unfortunately, most the mobile homes are equally old and most would not meet current federal standards. There is no central amenity such as a swimming pool and only a rudimentary and dilapidated meeting center and severe weather shelter. Given the value of residential properties in the vicinity, mobile homes on the site represent an underutilization of the land … In the future, the Kenzie District could evolve into a southern hub for the St. Anthony “suburban village.” To some extent, the district already plays that role, but the problems noted above with the shopping center, the mobile home park and Kenzie Terrace itself detract somewhat. While protecting the stable and attractive residential neighborhoods to the north and south, the older commercial, office and mobile home land uses could undergo redevelopment and/or remodeling. ” (2-21). “The Comprehensive Plan is a guide to the general future use of land, which is regulated by the City’s zoning ordinance and zoning map. However, it is the role of the property owner to propose any changes, to design a new plan for the property, to finance the redevelopment or remodeling and to address the subject of tenant relocation. (Tenant relocation at the Lowry Grove Mobile Home Park is regulated by City ordinance 2006-005 and State law 327C.095.) It is highly unlikely that the City would wish to – or even be legally able to – use eminent domain powers to buy the property for redevelopment. Redevelopment design would be regulated by the City’s zoning ordinance subject to public comment through the City’s established review process. ” (2-22). “The Mobile Home Site The Lowry Grove Mobile Home Park could be privately redeveloped into townhouses and condominium apartments. Examples of these types of housing are illustrated by the photos below. The bank building on the corner of Kenzie Terrace and Stinson Boulevard is sound and should probably remain. If redevelopment of this site occurs, the City of St. Anthony will ensure that the residents of the mobile home park are assisted in their relocation to other housing that meets their needs in terms of cost, location, handicap access and other provisions as required by State law (M.S. 327C.095). That law requires, among other provisions, that: There be a public notice of the owner’s intent to convert the mobile home park to another use. There be a public hearing before the City Council on any needed zoning change. That a displaced resident be paid reasonable relocation costs if he/she cannot relocate his/her mobile home to another manufactured home park within 25 miles. That residents be given the opportunity to collectively purchase the mobile home park for the same cash price as the seller would have received from the actual prospective buyer (the redeveloper). To ensure that adequate and affordable replacement housing is found for the park residents, the City may work on its own or in cooperation with the redevelopment company and/or the Hennepin County Housing and Redevelopment Authority or a private non-profit housing corporation. The relocation housing would ideally be located in St. Anthony, either in the form of existing or newly-constructed units. Potentially, some of the new housing for displaced residents could be located on the site of the redeveloped St. Anthony Shopping Center.” (2-24). “Redevelopment and infill will be pursued as opportunities become available. The trend has been for redevelopment to occur at the northern and southern ends of the city (e.g., Apache Plaza becoming Silver Lake Village) while its central single-family neighborhoods remain largely unchanged. Additional redevelopment supported by this Comprehensive Plan may add housing units in the southern part of the city near Kenzie Terrace at the Lowry Grove mobile home park and the St. Anthony Shopping Center … St. Anthony is essentially a fully developed community. The land use changes proposed in the Land Use Plan are fairly local in nature. Changes that may occur as the plan is realized include: Redevelopment of the Lowry Grove mobile home park to higher density housing … In order to support transit ridership, the City will adopt a land use plan and zoning amendments that allow redevelopment of the St. Anthony Shopping Center to a more intensive, vertically mixed-use residential and commercial configuration, along with redeveloping the Lowry Grove mobile home park to higher density housing” (3-15, 16). “Consider the long-term redevelopment of the Lowry Grove Mobile Home Park into new housing at a medium density” (1-7). “Moreover, 49 percent of the city’s housing stock is considered “life cycle housing” –units other than single-family detached (including manufactured) housing. By fostering the development of single-family attached and multi-family housing, the City has helped to meet residents’ needs as their circumstances change” (2-13).
