Planning Commission advances ordinance on manufactured homes

manufactured home

The Planning Commission voted unanimously July 11 to recommend that the City Council introduce a draft ordinance addressing manufactured homes.

To comply with State law, the City Council must adopt a number of housing ordinances before the new year. 

One of them would govern manufactured homes — single dwelling units that are constructed off-site and installed on a permanent foundation with utility connections.

To meet requirements of Del Mar's State-approved Housing Element, the draft ordinance would allow manufactured homes in R1 zones, which permit one dwelling unit per lot. 

To secure permits for a manufactured home as a primary residence, an applicant would complete the same approval process as that of a conventional dwelling unit in the same zone. 

That means manufactured homes would be subject to the Design Review Board's approval, except in cases where State laws require a ministerial approval process, including applications under Accessory Dwelling Unit or Senate Bill 9 laws.

The City Council is set to consider introducing the draft ordinance Sept. 5.
