Housing Density Questioned

A proposal to change zoning ordinances in Middlesex County to allow manufactured home communities outside of Low Density Rural areas is now on hold. Following a public hearing, applicant Leonard Powell requested time to refine the proposal amid objections. Powell aims to add “Resort Manufactured Homes Community” as a subcategory, citing it as a viable housing option. However, concerns over density and compatibility with existing neighborhoods were raised. Powell’s initiative sparked debate over housing affordability and community development.
