Mobile Home Parks

Contact Us

This program includes approximately 5,500 mobile home parks, lodging and recreational vehicle parks, and recreational camps. The objective of this program is to minimize the risk of injury and illness in this residential environment.

Of primary concern and importance are safe drinking water supply, proper sewage disposal, a safe and disease free swimming pool (where provided), and assurances that the establishment is free from garbage, harmful insects, and rodent infestations.

All of these establishments are licensed annually by the health department. The Health Department in Charlotte County provides direct services in the operational aspect of the program through routine inspections, plan reviews, educational programs, and enforcement actions. Health Department personnel also investigate environmental health complaints.
