JACKSON CO. RETHINKS MEMA COTTAGES, ZONING
This MS Cottage, located in Waveland, replaced a FEMA trailer just a few months ago. The people who live in this one are extremely happy with it.
The Jackson County Board of Supervisors has indicated that it just might rethink the issue of MEMA Cottages as permanent housing.
As I see it, this is a very smart move. It's logical and reasonable. It's practical and it will provide much more realistic housing for those who still suffer those intolerable FEMA trailers that are FINALLY ACKNOWLEDGED TO BE TOXIC!
The Mississippi Cottages are modular built homes. The fact that they are portable should not dissuade officials or neighborhoods from allowing them to become a real housing solution. The cottages are built to withstand winds up to 150 mph. That's pretty tough. They are also energy efficient, don't produce mold, and are built to housing code standards whereas plumbing and electrical are concerned.
