City to treat cottages as mobile homes
GULFPORT — Mississippi cottages will be treated as mobile homes in Gulfport.
The Gulfport City Council voted unanimously yesterday to approve the new classification for the Katrina disaster housing, which means cottages can be placed only in areas where mobile homes are allowed. State law, the state fire marshal’s office and the modular-home industry classify the cottages as modular homes.
The city will allow residents of 22 cottages to move forward with purchase of their units, which are in residential neighborhoods, from the Mississippi Emergency Management Agency. A total of 140 cottages are in the city.
Mayor George Schloegel tells The Sun Herald that the city will work with MEMA to finalize permanent placement for cottages that can remain in neighborhoods.
