Jefferson and Brad interview Donald Westphal for this week’s episode. This show is part one of a two-part interview. The men discuss zoning restrictions, what it takes to take a raw piece of land and turn it into a mobile home park, and all the red tape that’s associated with government bureaucracies.
[2:25] How did Donald get into designing mobile home parks?
[6:45] A quick plug for State Associations. They really help give the mobile home park industry a good image.
[8:15] What’s the process towards taking a piece of land and turning it into a mobile home park?
[16:25] Why has it become difficult to build affordable housing?
[20:40] Most people think zoning is a frivolous activity. It’s not!
[22:15] Townships, councilmen, and mayors often do not approve of the ‘trailer trash’ image. This is why it’s important that Donald get to work earlier, rather than later, on developing a good reputation and image when he begins building a new mobile home park.
[26:25] You have do your research and look very professional while giving a presentation on why mobile home parks are good for the community.
