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).
