The need for affordable housing in Vermont continues to rise, and mobile homes often provide the answer. But a recent study on mobile homes found that a significant number of them are old and need to be updated or replaced. On the plus side, Governor Douglas recently signed into law a recommendation by the advisory commission that conducted the study that makes it easier for people living in mobile home parks to form ownership cooperatives.
John Hall is the Commissioner of Vermont’s Department of Housing and Community Affairs that’s studying the mobile home issue. He recently spoke with Mitch Wertlieb about the study.
