Mobile home ordinance delayed
May 12, 2009 · 4:21 PM
A vote to permanently change Oak Harbor’s Manufactured Home Park Code is delayed until June 2.
Steve Powers, director of development services, requested additional time to allow city staff to look into the concerns raised at the April 21 City Council meeting and to gather more information for the planning commission.
On April 21 the council voted 4-1 to approve a set of temporary amendments to the Oak Harbor Municipal Code that allow manufactured homes in all residential zones within Oak Harbor’s city limits.
Supporting the motion were Rick Almberg, Beth Munns, Jim Palmer and Bob Severns.
Jim Campbell and Eric Gerber did not vote because neither attended the meeting. Campbell received an excused absence and Gerber remains on military leave.
Council member Danny Paggao cast the sole vote against the amendments.
The amended code is in effect until city staff can review the changes and the council can approve permanent set of code amendments.
