Residents of a manufactured housing park in Farro, Yukon Territory, could be faced with moving their homes as the town, which owns the land the trailers are on, considers rezoning the space to for an expansion of the RV park next to it, the Whitehorse Daily Star reported.
Debate on the matter, however, is far from over, and a number of options are being explored.
There are two manufactured housing parks in town that both once housed many more trailers than they do today.
The mobile home park that would be used as RV park space currently has seven trailers — five of which are occupied full-time — in what was once a space for about 30 manufactured homes.
The community has seen an increase in RV traffic through the summer, particularly for major events like Faro’s annual sheep and crane festival.
There is an area for overflow parking in the community. However, Dunlop noted additional RV space would allow those visitors closer access to the visitor center and the like as well as a wider turning space for the larger RVs that are more common today than when the RV park was built.
