FEMA Trailers Update

Posted: Updated:

In some neighborhoods, it's not a question of zombie homes, but of FEMA trailers that continue to rest on private property not zoned for such structures.

The city has allowed the FEMA temporary housing units to stay temporarily.

But that grace period is coming to an end soon.

City Engineer Lance Meyer says it's not a matter of trying to displace anyone.

He says the city believes homeowners have been given an appropriate amount of time to find other living arrangements.

But he says until the deadline hits in two months, it's hard to say how people will respond.

(Lance Meyer, City Engineer) "After June first the FEMA units they are no longer allowed to be there by zoning ordnance. That's the date that council has set. So when that day comes, technically they are in violation of ordinance. There's 36 units out there still."

An extension was given last year to people with FEMA trailers on their private property, in hopes that they would find other arrangements by this summer.
