1. a. Parks shall be of three types:
(1) Mobile and manufactured home parks;
(2) Travel trailer parks; and
(3) Mixed mobile/manufactured home and travel trailer parks.
b. No travel trailer shall be located in a mobile or manufactured home park. No mobile or manufactured home shall be located in a travel trailer park. In a mixed park, separate areas shall be reserved for each type of home and for travel trailers; no mobile or manufactured home shall be permitted in the travel trailer sector; no travel trailer shall be permitted in the mobile or manufactured home sectors.
2. All parks shall be located on a well-drained site, properly graded to ensure rapid drainage and freedom from stagnant pools of water; drainage shall not endanger any water supply.
3. The minimum area of any park shall be five acres. Parks in existence on the effective date of this chapter can continue to operate with less than five acres area; however, if the park is to be expanded, it must at that time expand to include at least five acres.
4. Intensity of development shall be limited to no more than ten homes per gross acre for a mobile or manufactured home park, and no more than 15 travel trailers per gross acre, for a travel trailer park. (Area used for sewerage treatment facilities shall not be included in density computations.) Mobile and manufactured home spaces shall be at least 30 feet wide where pads are closest to driveways. Travel trailer spaces shall be at least 25 feet wide where travel trailers are located closest to the driveway.
5. Every space shall be clearly defined. All homes and travel trailers shall be parked in such spaces, so that, at the nearest point, they shall be ten feet from the service road, five feet from the rear lot and at least ten feet from the boundary line of any other individual spaces, as well as any other home or travel trailer.
6. It shall be unlawful to locate any home or travel trailer less than 25 feet from any public street or highway right-of-way, or so that any part of such home or travel trailer will obstruct any roadway or walkway of such park.
7. It shall be unlawful to permit a mobile or manufactured home to occupy a travel trailer space, a travel trailer to occupy a mobile or manufactured home space and for any mobile or manufactured home or travel trailer to be located in a park unless in a space designated specifically for that type of home or trailer.
8. All mobile and manufactured home spaces shall abut upon a sealed-surface driveway of not less than 20 feet in width, if on-street parking is prohibited, and 26 feet in width, if on-street parking is permitted on one side of the street only. Driveways must have unobstructed access to a public street or highway.
9. In all parks existing on the effective date of this chapter, parking on or adjacent to the street within the park is permissible as long as it does not obstruct free movement of traffic. Whether or not a safety hazard exists is a question to be determined by the Planning Commission, with final appeal to the City Council. If, upon final appeal before said City Council, it is determined that a safety hazard does in fact exist, the park concerned will be required to comply with the following provisions:
a. In new mobile or manufactured home parks, at least two clearly-defined parking spaces will be provided for each space either on or adjacent to the space; and
b. In new travel trailer parks, at least one clearly-defined parking space shall be provided for each space either on, or adjacent to, the space.
10. All roadways within a park shall meet road improvement standards consistent with the city’s standards, or state law for private roads, as contained in the city’s adopted subdivision regulations ordinance.
11. In developed areas of the city, new parks must abut, and have their major means of ingress and egress on, a thoroughfare of appropriate classification.
12. All parks shall have and maintain a buffer planting strip along all park boundaries not bordering a street.
