Trailer park near our subdivision
« on: May 15, 2018, 01:44:32 PM »
Hey guys i need a little advice if anyone has any experience in this. We live in a small neighborhood of around 20 houses. There is a 6 acre lot that is just to the right of the road called Flat creek church road that a local up here wants to get rezoned to R3 (high density residential) and put in a trailer park. As you can guess our entire neighborhood is very upset about this. Have any of you guys had any experience in this and could potentially give me some advice as to how we can stop it? The meeting is this thursday the 17th and we learned yesterday that the gentleman has a lawyer to represent him and at this point its a little late for us to get one.

Look to see if your county has a future land use plan.  If so, see if the re-zoning conforms to that plan. 

If the re-zoning conforms to the current or future land use plan, you are likely out of luck.

If it doesn't, go to the zoning meeting, get on the list to speak and speak out against zoning outside of the County plan.  Write/email your county commissioner as well as your zoning commissioner.  Not sure about your county but it will likely have to pass the zoning commission and then the county commission.

What’s the big deal with adding a few more trailers next to yours?

I would try to find out what kind of restrictions your county
has for trailers also. Most new trailer parks now days can
only have double wide's and a certain size lot with certain
codes. I think that would be the key to unsure it's not like
the first image that comes to your mind.

Serious:  Buy the land now, or when it opens rent every slot. 

Clark:  I've never lived in a trailer park, but I imagine it's a heck of a good time; comedian Larry Miller had a skit about the "5 levels of drinking", '6 if you live in a trailer park'. 


Send me the address, we could be neighbors.

Bunch of jerks. Thanks to @tcdawg  for being the only one to actually help. Oh and @patman  im pretty sure you couldn't afford one of these trailers but your jeep would fit right in with the other vehicles.

Crap man i didn't even see your reply. Its hard to see it through all the bs. I appreciate the advice though. Basically an R3 (high density) in gilmer county is allowed up to 4 trailers per acre. They can be used but have to be newer than a certain year (the year i don't know).

I will add that one of my neighbors called and spoke with the property owner yesterday and he said that since he had been met with such resistance that he would do his best to make it as bad as he possibly could and put as many trailers on the property as the county regulations would allow. Hes being vindictive at this point.
