AN ACT CONCERNING THE UPGRADING OF EXISTING MOBILE MANUFACTURED HOME PARKS.

Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives in General Assembly convened:

Section 1. Section 21-68 of the general statutes is repealed and the following is substituted in lieu thereof (Effective from passage):

Each mobile manufactured home park shall conform to the requirements of the State Building Code, the Fire Safety Code and local ordinances or planning or zoning regulations, if any, provided an applicant for a license for a mobile manufactured home park in existence on October 1, 1972, may, with the consent of the Commissioner of Consumer Protection, be exempted from the provisions of sections 425. 31, 425. 32, 425. 33, 425. 51 and 425. 52 of the basic or State Building Code, if such park meets the remaining requirements for a license; and provided further, the commissioner may exempt any mobile manufactured home park from the provisions of section 425. 37 of said code, with respect to faucets, sanitary facilities, laundry tubs and slop sinks for community use. The replacement of a mobile manufactured home in a mobile manufactured home park with a mobile manufactured home with the same or different external dimensions that is built in compliance with federal mobile manufactured home construction and safety standards, as amended from time to time, shall not constitute an expansion of a nonconforming use.
