(A) Improvement location permit.
(1) Requirements. Prior to the location, relocation, or establishment of any manufactured home or manufactured dwellings, the property owner or authorized representative shall secure from the town an improvement location permit, which states that the building and its location conform with the County Comprehensive Zoning Plan and this subchapter. Each application for an improvement location permit shall be accompanied by:
(a) A fee of $75 to process said permit;
(b) Those plot plans as required for all dwelling units, but which at a minimum include elevations or photographs of all sides of the home, exterior dimensions, roof materials, foundation siding or permanent perimeter enclosure treatment, foundation siding or perimeter retaining wall treatment, foundation construction and materials, exterior finishes, and the like (see the Manufactured Home Data Sheet);
(c) Health Department approval for any sewage disposal or water supply, where applicable;
(d) Subdivision or mobile home park permit approval, where applicable;
(e) A copy of the approved instructions that will be used for installation purposes, where applicable;
(f) Such other information as may be required by the town or its designated administrator for proper enforcement of this subchapter; and
(g) An agreement signed by the home owner or authorized representative pledging compliance with the terms set by the Town Council in the improvement location permit.
(2) Issuance of a permit. After receipt of the information required for an improvement location permit, the Town Council shall review the standards set in this subchapter. If the applicant has met all required standards, an improvement location permit shall be issued by the town within seven working days.
(3) Additional action necessary. If, after receipt of the information required for an improvement location permit, the Town Council finds that the applicant has not fully met the standards set in this subchapter and the changes or additional actions needed are deemed by the town to be relatively minor or simple, within seven working days a conditional approval can be issued with the stated conditions which must be met prior to occupancy spelled out and the reasons for change clearly stated in writing. If the applicant agrees in writing to the further conditions, the effect being an amendment to the application to conform to the requirements, approval is given and the applicant proceeds. If the applicant does not agree, the application is denied with reasons stated in writing.
(4) Denial of permit. If any of the provisions of this subchapter are not met, the improvement location permit will be denied with a written statement specifying the reasons for the denial.
(B) Certificate of occupancy.
(1) Occupancy requirement. Prior to the occupancy of any manufactured home or manufactured dwelling, the owner or authorized representative shall secure from the Town Council a certificate of occupancy stating that the building and its use comply with all provisions of this subchapter applicable to the building or the use in the district in which it is to be located. Such certificate of occupancy shall be submitted to the town prior to occupancy.
(2) Issuance of certificate. After submission of the application for a certificate of occupancy to the town, the town shall inspect the property and make such referrals to other local officials for technical determinations for conformance with conditions of the improvement location permit and the standards set in this subchapter. If the applicant has conformed with all of the required conditions and standards, the town shall issue its certificate of occupancy within seven working days.
(3) Denial of certificate. If any of the major conditions or standards have not been complied with, the certificate of occupancy shall be denied with a written statement specifying the reasons for the denial.
(C) Failure to obtain required permits. Failure to obtain either an improvement location permit or a certificate of occupancy shall be violation of this subchapter and punishable under § 154.99.
