Greenville’s Board of Adjustment unanimously approved a special-use permit that will allow a woman to place her mobile home in a neighborhood northwest of the city.

The permit required no special conditions, lead planner Elizabeth Blount said. The property is located in a residential-agricultural zone, which requires a special -use permit to locate mobile homes in that zoning area.

The city requires mobile homes to meet the city’s minimum housing code. It also has to have either a permanent, continuous masonry foundation or a continuous, opaque skirt of vinyl, fiberglass or a similar, nonmetal material. The skirt has to be attached to weather resistant material for support.

The doublewide mobile home will be located on a .37-acre lot in the 1000 block of Benjaman Drive, Eastwoods Country Estates, located off of Old River Road. It is surrounded by multiple mobile homes and some vacant property, Blount said.

David Rice, a representative of Crossland Homes, urged the board to approve the application.

“Most of the neighborhood is singlewide and we want to put in a new doublewide for Ms. Johnson,” he said.
