Office of Regulatory Oversight
The Office of Regulatory Oversight (ORO) oversees the regulatory functions of the Division of Housing. Specifically, state laws and rules governing the:
1. Construction of factory-built structures (residential and nonresidential);
2. Sale and installation of manufactured homes;
3. Site built construction of hotels, motels, and multi-family units in those areas of the state where no local building department exists;
4. Standards for accessible housing; and
5. Mobile home parks.
ORO is comprised of two parts: the Building Codes & Standards Section and the Mobile Home Park Act Dispute Resolution & Enforcement Program.
The Building Codes & Standards Section regulates the areas covered under #s 1-4.
The Mobile Home Park Act Dispute Resolution & Enforcement Program regulates mobile home parks.
Regulation occurs in partnership with local governments, the federal government, other state agencies, nonprofits, and the private sector.
