Manufactured Homes as Affordable Housing in Rural Areas. Rural Information Center Publication Series, No. 5.
Czerniak, Robert, Comp.
This bibliography includes citations of approximately 60 books and articles pertaining to manufactured housing or "mobile homes," an important segment of the national housing industry. The availability of manufactured homes for low and moderate income groups is significant in light of skyrocketing new-housing costs. The South leads the nation with the highest numbers of manufactured units sited. The popularity of manufactured housing has created a number of issues for federal, state, and local governments. The federal and state roles have been primarily in the area of establishing building standards and regulations. State regulation has also been involved in the transportation of manufactured housing on state roads. States have begun to review taxation of mobile homes, while local governments have been creating regulations regarding zoning and the siting of manufactured housing. The most common restriction is to limit siting to "mobile home parks." The bibliography citations are classified under the following nine topic areas: Land Use Regulations; Impacts on Residential Areas; Construction Standards; Affordable Housing; Tax Issues; Trends and Forecasts; Parks; Value; and Case Studies. Most listings include title, author, publication source and volume numbers, page numbers, and publication date. The document also contains selected lists of journals and associations pertaining to housing. The citations were the result of online database searches through the DIALOG and LOGIN systems. The databases used in DIALOG were: the Architectural Database, Encyclopedia of Associations, PAIS International, and Trade and Industry. (TES)
