The Manufactured Dwelling Park Project creates a new zone only for manufactured dwelling parks. The zoning changes will create consistent development standards for density, access, setbacks and landscaping that are unique to manufactured dwelling parks.

The City of Portland recognizes the importance of mobile home parks as an affordable housing option. These parks and the housing units in them provide some of most affordable housing in the city.
To help park residents stay in their homes, the Manufactured Dwelling Park (MDP) Project will stabilize the housing situation for people living in manufactured or mobile home parks by creating a new base zone for mobile home parks.
The purpose of this zoning change is to ensure long-term operations of manufactured dwelling parks. It will not force park owners to close parks, and it will not force park owners to raise rents.
