Monday, Palo Pinto County commissioners approved minimum infrastructure standards for mobile home rental communities.
The adoption means mobile home parks in unincorporated areas of Palo Pinto County will be required to meet certain standards.
Palo Pinto County Judge David Nicklas said he interprets the law to read that existing parks are grandfathered and will not have to meet the new standards.
"Even if they add spaces," he continued.
The order applies to "manufactured home rental communities having two or more spaces."
For new facilities, a number of requirements must be met and an approval obtained from commissioners court before construction begins.
Requirements include a professional engineer report responsible for road constriction and drainage plans submitted with the infrastructure development plan certifying that all work has been satisfactorily completed per the plan.
