East Harbor Hills LLC: Manufactured Homes and Planned Unit Developments


City-initiated1 and Private Amendment Request submitted by East Harbor Hills, LLC to amend Blaine Municipal Code Chapter 17.68 – Planned Unit Developments (PUD) to: 

  1. Amend BMC 17.68.120.A.1 to eliminate the exclusion of manufactured and mobile homes to remedy an inconsistency with RCW 35.21.312; and 
  2. Amend Table 17.68.C to include mobile/manufactured and modular homes and manufactured home parks, and show those as a permitted use in a PUD located in the Planned Residential zone, consistent with the standards for manufactured homes contained in BMC 17.112 and with the permitted uses in the Planned Residential Zoning District as listed in BMC 17.42.020.

Per Resolution 1929-23 adopted by the City Council at their September 11, 2023 meeting, the CDS Department has been directed to reinstate the text amendment process for manufactured home park regulations as both a citizen initiated text amendment and a Council initiated text amendment


The Residential PUD Standards (BMC 17.68.120) exclude manufactured home parks and manufactured homes as a housing type within a PUD. This means that even though manufactured homes and home parks are allowed within the Planned Residential (PR) zone (BMC 17.42.020), this same housing type is specifically prohibited as an option within a PUD. The applicant has submitted a zoning text amendment request to modify the Residential PUD Standards so that they better aligned with the PR permitted uses.
