This Week at MHISC
February 20 – 24, 2023
This week, the MHISC staff have been working with retail managers from across the state to identify any areas of SC infrastructure that have damaged manufactured homes in transport. Several retailers have identified low hanging powerlines or untrimmed trees that tear into homes being moved. If the association finds a trend in these issues, we will work with the SC Department of Transportation to get them fixed.
Additionally, the association’s continuing education page has been updated to include upcoming courses being offered at chapter meetings in March as well as adding a link to the first online courses that members can take for free anytime. You can check out the new CE page [here].
January 23-27, 2023
MHISC Staff met with several SC Senate and House members this week to discuss bringing more opportunities to place affordable manufactured homes for their constituents. One issue that was brought up was the rise in 5-year age limits on MH popping up in municipalities across the state which would cripple the market for retailers selling pre-owned homes as well as MH communities in these areas.
Association staff worked on putting together a multi-prong plan for approaching these issues, including an all-city and county newsletter blast (which was dropped in the mail this afternoon), setting up meetings between members and city governments, and allying with statehouse members to work on removing these ordinances on a large scale.
January 16-20, 2023
This week, MHISC met with key staff members from representatives on the SC Statehouse’s Labor, Commerce & Industry committee to discuss how proposed legislation would affect our members and SC homebuyers.
MHISC staff also set down with the mayor of the city of Saluda to discuss strategies for replacing older homes in the city with new, affordable manufactured homes. MHISC will coordinate with members in the area to fill this development opportunity.
Additionally, registration for the March chapter meetings has just gone live. You can register for these meetings [here].
January 9-13, 2023
This week marked the beginning of the 2023-24 legislative session. MHISC staff works closely with members of the General Assembly and their staffs to protect and promote manufactured housing in our state.
Staff have also been working with chapter officers to set up local continuing education for the six March chapter meetings. Registration and full event info will be available next week.
January 2-6, 2023
Association staff attended a Richland County Council meeting where councilmembers discussed enacting impact fees on all new homes in the county. MHISC will stay closely involved in these discussions.
Additionally, MHISC launched registration for the June 20-22 Convention in Myrtle Beach. You can register for the event [here].
