The Town initiated efforts in the winter of 2017 to develop a Manufactured Home Strategy to address the redevelopment threat of the manufactured home communities in Chapel Hill. The foundation for this strategy involved proactively engaging residents and owners of the Town’s four manufactured home communities to develop potential solutions that are responsive to residents’ needs and interests. After extensive engagement, the Town created Manufactured Home Strategy with four key components.
Engage manufactured home park residents, owners, potential developers and neighbors to create proactive solutions.
2. Develop a menu of housing options for the Council to consider as manufactured home residents face displacement, including but not limited to:
Financial assistance for relocation
Onsite or off-site unit construction as part of redevelopment
3. Identify potential sites for development of new housing.
Evaluate Town-owned sites
Determine if existing manufactured home communities have additional capacity
4. Develop a coordinated plan to apply to any manufactured home community faced with redevelopment.
