Subdivision of manufactured dwelling park or mobile home park
  • waiver of right of remonstrance to formation of local improvement district

Notwithstanding the standards and procedures established under ordinances and regulations adopted by the governing body of a city or a county under ORS 92.044 (Adoption of standards and procedures governing approval of plats and plans) or 92.048 (Procedure for adoption of regulations under ORS 92.044 and 92.046), when application for approval of the subdivision of a manufactured dwelling park or mobile home park that was lawfully approved before July 2, 2001, is made under ORS 92.040 (Application for approval of subdivision or partition) to the governing body of a city or county, the governing body of the city or county shall approve:

(1) A tentative plan upon receipt and verification of evidence that:

(a) The park is in compliance with the governing body’s standards for a manufactured dwelling park or a mobile home park or is an approved nonconforming use. For the purposes of this paragraph, a park is in compliance if the governing body of the city or county has not issued a written notice of noncompliance on or before July 2, 2001;

(b) Except as provided in this paragraph, the tentative plan does not make changes from the approved manufactured dwelling park or mobile home park development, including but not limited to increasing or decreasing the number of lots as defined in ORS 446.003 (Definitions for ORS 446.003 to 446.200 and 446.225 to 446.285 and ORS chapters 195, 196, 197, 215 and 227) or changing the external boundary lines or setback requirements. The tentative plan may provide for a reduction in the number of lots, if the reduction involves only lots that have never been used for placement of manufactured dwellings;

(c) The tentative plan restricts the use of lots in the subdivision to the installation of manufactured dwellings and restricts any other property in the subdivision to use as common property as defined in ORS 94.550 (Definitions for ORS 94.550 to 94.783) or for public purposes;

(d) The tentative plan does not contain conditions of approval or require development agreements except the original conditions of approval and development agreements contained in the original approval for the park or conditions required by ORS 92.830 (Definitions for ORS 92.830 to 92.845) to 92.845 (Relationship of subdivision in manufactured dwelling park or mobile home park to planned community statutes and series partition statutes); and

(e) The property owners applying for the conversion have signed and recorded a waiver of the right of remonstrance, in a form approved by the city or county, for the formation of a local improvement district by a city or county. A waiver described in this paragraph must be in regard only to sanitary and storm sewers or water facilities and be operative only if the city or county determines after a hearing that the absence or inadequacy of those sewers or facilities is an immediate danger to life, health or safety. However, a waiver of the right of remonstrance may not be required of the owner of a lot in a manufactured dwelling park or mobile home park if the park was served for water, sewer and irrigation by a private utility company prior to an acquisition of that company by municipal condemnation commenced prior to January 1, 2003.

(2) A plat in compliance with the applicable requirements of ORS 92.010 (Definitions for ORS 92.010 to 92.192) to 92.192 (Property line adjustment), except standards and procedures adopted by regulation or ordinance under ORS 92.044 (Adoption of standards and procedures governing approval of plats and plans) or 92.048 (Procedure for adoption of regulations under ORS 92.044 and 92.046). The plat may not contain conditions of approval or require development agreements except the original conditions of approval and development agreements contained in the original plat for the park or conditions required by ORS 92.830 (Definitions for ORS 92.830 to 92.845) to 92.845 (Relationship of subdivision in manufactured dwelling park or mobile home park to planned community statutes and series partition statutes). [2001 c.711 §3; 2003 c.474 §7]
