(A) No freestanding mobile home or recreation vehicle shall be permitted in the city limits other than in the RMH-1 District unless it is being offered for sale, or parked for storage. Those freestanding mobile homes which are now nonconforming uses under the provisions of the zoning ordinance may continue as nonconforming uses provided that they shall not be stored in front yards or on side yards abutting a street on corner lots.
(B) Except for mobile homes or recreation vehicles within regular commercial mobile home or recreation vehicle sales lots or in the RMH-1 Residential District, each clearly marked as such, shall not be occupied for either living or sleeping purposes and must be removed from the premises if not sold within 120 days. Freestanding mobile homes or recreation vehicles located within regular commercial mobile home or recreation vehicles sales lots need be neither individually marked for sale nor removed within 120 days if not sold. A property owner shall not store, not permit to be stored, more than one mobile home or recreation vehicle on a residential lot.
(C) Freestanding mobile homes shall be permitted in the city’s rural area, but only in agricultural zoning districts. Permits for the freestanding mobile homes shall be issued by the Inspection Officer, but only when the applicant agrees, in writing, to remove the mobile home within 120 days after either the mobile home site is rezoned to a district other than agricultural or is abutted within 660 feet by districts other than agricultural. The freestanding mobile homes must comply with all normal city regulations.
(D) Mobile homes located in the RMH-1 Residential District shall be considered as a single-family residential unit for permanent occupancy and shall conform with all requirements of the district and all other regulations of the city.
