RV/Manufactured Home Rental Communities
On October 31, 2017 the Brazos County Commissioners' Court put into place the Order Adopting Brazos County Infrastructure Requirements for Manufactured Home Rental Communities.
The Commissioners Court of Brazos County has considered the potential pollution, nuisances and injury to public health that could be caused by the existence of RV/Manufactured Home Rental Communities within the County and has adapted these regulations.
An Infrastructure Development Plan that includes the following:

If the Infrastructure Development Plan is complete and approved, the County Engineer will schedule a presentation of the accepted Development Plan to the Commissioners' Court.

Upon completion of construction the owner shall notify the County Engineer in writing, that the infrastructure is complete. A final inspection will be scheduled.
When the infrastructure complies with all regulations the County Engineer will schedule a review by the Commissioners' Court. The County Engineer shall issue a County Certificate of Compliance following the Commissioners' Court approval of the plan.
