The foregoing requirements in § 151.02 notwithstanding, the placement and use of mobile homes in any residential district within the city shall be aesthetically compatible with single-family dwellings in the district, and as a minimum the mobile homes shall:
(A) Be so placed and situated so that the wheels shall be removed and the underside or chassis of the mobile home shall be completely enclosed and firmly connected to the foundation; and,
(B) Shall be placed upon the property in such a way that its appearance shall be compatible with single-family dwellings constructed on-site within the district.
(1) The compatibility of design and appearance shall be determined in the first instance by the Zoning Officer upon review of the plans submitted for a particular dwelling, subject to appeal by any aggrieved party to the Zoning Board of Appeals within a period of 15 days from the receipt of notice of the Zoning Officer's decision.
(2) Any determination of compatibility shall be based upon the standards of the character, design and appearance of other residential dwellings located outside of mobile home parks and mobile home residential districts within 2,000 feet of the subject dwelling where such area is developed with dwellings to the extent of not less than 20% of the lots situated within said area; or, where the area is not so developed, by the character, design and appearance of other residential dwellings located outside of mobile home parks and mobile home residential districts throughout the city. The foregoing shall not be construed to prohibit innovative design concepts involving such matters as solar energy, view, unique land contour, or relief from the common or standard designed home.
(C) Not contain additions or rooms or other areas which are not constructed with at least similar quality workmanship as the original structure, including permanent attachment to the principal structure and construction of a foundation as required herein.
