Torrey changes code on mobile homes

Responding to a change in state law enacted in late 2015, the Town of Torrey is altering its building codes regarding manufactured homes.

Passed by the Legislature and signed by Gov. Andrew Cuomo in Nov. 2015, the new article added to existing law states, ”… manufactured homes that meet identical development specification and standards as those used as single family-dwelling units in residential districts, including aesthetic and architectural standards, which apply to single family residential dwellings within a municipal residential district shall be deemed in conformance with the local zoning code as a single family residence. Similarly, the development of new manufactured home parks or the expansion of existing manufactured home parks shall also be deemed in compliance with local zoning restrictions which would be applicable to compliant single family free standing dwelling developments.”
