Editor's Note: This article was originally adopted in 1979 by Ord. Nos. 53 and 53A, amended in its entirety in 1998 by Ord. No. 330 (Ch. 15.20 of the 1983 Municipal Code) and was relocated in this Zoning Chapter at the Town's request.
As used in this article, the following terms shall have the meanings indicated:
MANUFACTURED HOME
A structure which is fabricated in one or more sections at a location other than the construction site in the Town of Pinedale by assembly-line-type production techniques or by other construction methods unique to an off-site manufacturing process and is designed to be towed on its own chassis or be site delivered by an alternative means. This shall include, but not be limited to, so-called mobile homes, doublewide mobile homes, triple-wide mobile homes, modular structures and manufactured homes. Such a structure shall continue to be considered a manufactured home despite removal of tires, removal of wheels, removal of axles, despite the fact that such structure has been set upon a foundation or despite the fact that such structure has been attached to the ground in any manner.
No person shall park, place or occupy as a manufactured home within the corporate limits of the Town, except as provided in this article.
Except where prohibited by covenants or other statutes, ordinances or regulations, a single manufactured home shall be permitted on a single lot in all zoning districts if it meets the following standards:
A. 
The structure is built in compliance with either the current Manufactured Home Construction and Safety Standards of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) or the current Uniform Building Code (UBC). Current standards shall be those in effect as of the date the related application for a building permit is applied for.

A nonconforming manufactured home may not be replaced in the event of destruction or removal.
Any part of the Town may be designated as a manufactured home district. The procedure whereby a manufactured home district is established shall be the same procedure as for the enactment of a Town ordinance. The Town may permit the new location of a nonconforming manufactured home only within a duly designated manufactured home district, and only after an applicant has applied for a manufactured home use permit and the Town has approved the permit, except that the Town may approve and issue a temporary manufactured home permit as provided in this article. The Town shall have the power to approve or disapprove any application for a manufactured home use permit if the location of said nonconforming manufactured home will materially adversely impact the other landowners in the immediate vicinity of the proposed location of the nonconforming manufactured home. The Town shall have the power to place specific limitations or restrictions upon the permittee's manufactured home use and shall have the power to place an expiration date upon any manufactured home use permit. The Town shall have the power to revoke a manufactured home use permit if a permittee fails to comply with limitations or restrictions placed upon a manufactured home use permit.
