JUNCTION CITY - Manufactured homes will be allowed in the city, but under an ordinance passed Thursday they will have to meet certain standards.
The City Council passed the ordinance after weeks of drafting and revision from a committee. The guidelines follow closely a new law, KRS 100.348, and are intended to ensure that the homes look like the houses nearby.
The standards include: Homes must been manufactured after July 15, 2002. They must have concrete, permanent foundations. The main entrance door must face the street.
To be compatible with other homes in the neighborhood, within a one-eighth mile radius, the homes must have the same or similar roof pitch, number of stories, exterior wall height, siding, skirting and porch.
