The City of Soldotna regulates the placement of mobile homes through a permit process. With the permit, the applicant is required to fill out and submit a waiver (link). The waiver makes the Owner aware that some mobile homes were not constructed for all possible structural loads that may occur (snow, wind, seismic, etc.).
Before moving a mobile home, contact the Building Department to determine if the trailer is actually movable – this requires trailers to have been built and certified according to the National Manufactured Housing Construction and Safety Standards Act of 1974)
Any existing mobile home brought into the City will still be subject to proper plumbing, electrical, mechanical, fire and life safety provisions as they occur in the codes.
Mobile homes will also be inspected for proper anchoring and support. A drawing that outlines the typical installation is listed below.
