This article provides for the submittal requirements, development standards, processing, administration and enforcement of a specific type of development requiring a land development permit under Article XVI of this chapter. Because mobile home parks are such a highly specialized and tightly designed group living complex, this article contains a number of detailed requirements for mobile homes and mobile home parks, including both development and operational provisions (particularly as they apply to the physical features, utility services and initial occupancy of a park under staged construction). Additional administration and enforcement considerations are also by necessity included in this article.
A. 
After the effective date of this chapter, no mobile home shall be permitted to be located in a duly licensed mobile home park which does not meet the minimum standards set forth in publication NFPA No. 501A, 1982 Standard for Fire Safety Criteria, Mobile Home Installations, Sites and Communities, as it may be amended, and these standards are hereby adopted by reference and incorporated in this chapter.
B. 
After the effective date of this chapter and prior to the issuance of any required occupancy permits, no mobile home shall be located on any lot within a mobile home park until at least one permanent marker is set on a corner of the lot fronting on a street. The term "permanent marker" includes, but is not limited to, the following: a granite monument, a concrete monument, an iron pin or a drill hole in ledge.
C. 
No mobile home shall be located or occupied in the City of Bangor unless the mobile home conforms to all standards of construction, design and performance adopted pursuant to the National Mobile Home Construction and Safety Standards Act of 1974 (42 U.S.C. § 5401 et seq.), the State of Maine Manufactured Housing Act (10 M.R.S.A. § 9001 et seq., as it may be amended) or the State of Maine Industrialized Housing Law (30-A M.R.S.A. § 4358 et seq., as it may be amended) or any successive legislation or standards, except those meeting local standards. Any mobile home presently located and occupied in the City of Bangor which does not conform to said standards may remain but may not be replaced by a mobile home which does not conform to said standards.
D. 
No mobile home shall be occupied for any purpose in the City of Bangor until a certificate of occupancy shall have been issued by the Code Enforcement Officer stating that the mobile home and the proposed use and/or occupancy thereof complies with all applicable laws and ordinances of the City of Bangor.
E. 
No mobile home used as a principal residential building on an individual lot or in a mobile home park may be replaced if the replacing mobile home will create nonconforming yards or separation distances or will increase any nonconformity of yards or separation distances existing as of the effective date of this provision.
F. 
All mobile home parks and mobile homes in existence prior to this chapter and those in existence prior to September 13, 1971, were required to comply with the requirements of this article except for the requirements of §§ 165-120A and 165-123C and E(2).
No person, firm or corporation shall construct a new mobile home park or alter or expand an existing mobile home park unless such person shall first obtain a land development permit for such purpose, as follows:

Editor’s Note: Former Subsection O, regarding construction of, or in, a mobile home park, which immediately followed this subsection, was repealed 1-9-2017 by Ord. No. 17-055.
Mobile home parks in existence prior to the effective date of this chapter shall conform to the following regulations:
A. 
Within 90 days after said effective date the owner or operator of such park shall be required to submit to the Code Enforcement Officer a general site plan of the park showing the following information as it existed on the effective date of this chapter unless accomplished under the previous ordinance adopted in September of 1971 or approved under the provisions of said ordinance:
(1) 
Name(s) and address(es) of the owner and operator.
(2) 
Area and dimensions of the park.
(3) 
Number, location, size and shape of all mobile home lots.
(4) 
Number, location and size of all mobile homes and buildings.
(5) 
Location and width of all streets and walkways.
(6) 
Approximate location and size of water, sewer, gas and other utility and sewage disposal facilities.
B. 
The coverage of any lot shall not be increased over that existing on the effective date of this chapter, or, in the case of lots unoccupied by mobile homes on such date, lot coverage shall not be increased over what it was when last occupied prior to the effective date of this chapter.
C. 
Any existing mobile home park developed prior to September 13, 1971, may be reconstructed in its entirety in accordance with the provisions of this subsection.
(1) 
Any application for the reconstruction of an existing mobile home park under this subsection shall comply with the provisions of Article XVI and this article.
(2) 
To be eligible for the reconstruction of a mobile home park under this subsection, the existing mobile home park must be located in a district in which a mobile home park is either a permitted or conditional use. An application for the reconstruction of an existing mobile home park must also comply with any other relevant requirements of this chapter.
(3) 
The Planning Board shall review all applications for the reconstruction of an existing mobile home park in accordance with § 165-119E. Before the Planning Board may approve reconstruction, the Board shall determine the following:
(a) 
That the proposed reconstruction will not result in an increase in density, as compared to that of the existing mobile home park, density being measured as the number of mobile homes per acre.
(b) 
That the proposed reconstruction will not result in an increase in the percentage of lot coverage, as compared to that of the existing mobile home park, the percentage of coverage being calculated by dividing the square footage of the mobile homes by the square footage of the land area developed for mobile home lots.
(c) 
That it would constitute an undue economic hardship to require that the reconstruction of the existing mobile home park be in accordance with the provisions applicable to new or expanded mobile home parks. The applicant must demonstrate that reconstruction of the mobile home park in accordance with the requirements contained in § 165-120 above would result in the failure to realize a reasonable rate of return on the investment necessary for such a reconstruction of the mobile home park in question.
(4) 
Alternative development requirements. For those applications for reconstruction of an existing mobile home park where the Planning Board determines that compliance with any or all of the requirements of § 165-120 would result in an undue economic hardship, the Planning Board may approve reconstruction plans which conform to the minimum standards set forth below. (Note: If an alternative standard is not set forth herein, the applicable standard set forth in § 165-120 shall apply to the proposed reconstruction of an existing mobile home park.)
(a) 
Minimum land area for the reconstructed mobile home park: land area of the existing mobile home park.
(b) 
No mobile home in the reconstructed mobile home park shall be located any closer to the park boundary than were the mobile homes in the existing park.

(e) 
The screen planting zone along mobile home park boundary lines shall have a minimum width of five feet.
(f) 
Recreation areas shall not be required for reconstructed mobile home parks containing fewer than 50 mobile home lots. If the reconstructed park contains 50 or more mobile home lots, the Planning Board shall determine how much recreation area is adequate to service the residents of said park and may require up to 10% of the area of the mobile home lots for such area.
(g) 
Detached accessory structures are prohibited on mobile home lots in a mobile home park reconstructed under this Subsection C. Attached structures, such as an awning, cabana, storage cabinet, windbreak or porch, are permissible as long as the gross floor area of the same does not exceed 32 square feet. For purposes of all separation requirements imposed by this chapter, attached structures shall be considered to be part of the mobile home.
