A moratorium to keep new mobile homes from coming into the City of Parker won't be lifted any time soon. The regulation was put in place May 1st during a revision of the city's Land Development Regulations--- or L.D.R's.
The temporary hold was put in place so the city could look into how or if they could regulate the condition of mobile homes and mobile home parks in the area. The L.D.Rs currently state that mobile homes can only reside on mobile home park property and not on single family lots-- which the city is planning to change.
The former city clerk said drafts of the new L.D.Rs would be reviewed on May 17th. Nearly 3 months later they have not been completed.
Council member Michael Miller said the city should not have to pay because the job is not being done.
"We ought to come up with some kind of verbiage or wordage to allow certain mobile homes even on a temporary basis," said Council Member Miller. "I just don't think it's right to give them another ninety days."
The motion to extend the moratorium passed three to two.
Also discussed tonight was reviewing applications for a new city clerk. The city has received twenty nine applications for the opening and will review them at a special meeting at parker city hall Tuesday July 24th at nine o'clock.
