Lovett’s Mobile Home Park Modification Request

§ 119-43. Design and construction requirements.

H. Park Street system


  • 50’ ROW reduced to 30’
  • Surface treatment waived


I.  off street parking           



J. Walks



Modification request: 

H. Park Street system, 520 foot roadway for the 2018 expansion

  1. Reduce road ROW from 50’ to 30’
  2. Waive surface treatment of expansion area in exchange for tar/chipping both Lisa lane and Dillen Drive the equivalent area, see attached drawings.
    1. No sense paving the back of the park where few residents will use it.
    2. Paving both entrances will benefit all of the park residents.
    3. Will reduce dust from all cars entering and leaving the park, benefitting the neighbors.
    4. Will improve “curb appeal” making the park look significantly better.

HARDSHIP: There is no hardship, just trying to apply common sense.

I.  Off Street Parking

  1. Waive surface treatment of parking spaces.

HARDSHIP:  Doesn’t make sense to have a paved parking area adjacent to non-paved

J. Walks  

  1. Waive walks on both sides of the expansion roadway; no sense having a walkway in the back of the park where few residents will use it.
  2. We propose putting two sections of 6’wide concrete sidewalk connecting Dillen Drive and Lisa Lane 1) along Leacock Road beyond the ditch  2)where the playground is located, allowing easier access for residents on Lisa Lane


  • No other residential zoning district requires sidewalks causing undue hardship on the MHP owners
  • Walking and bike riding can be done on the roadway, as is done in other residential zoning districts.  Park speed limit is 5 mph, much slower than other residential districts.
