Modular home builder still battling Gainesville

By Ashley Fielding, the Gainesville Times

The city's attorney, Dana Maine of the Atlanta firm Freeman, Mathis and Gary, argues that city officials are within their rights and, so far, the courts have agreed.

In early 2005, Smereczynsky started assembling a modular home at 2668 Waters Edge Drive. The city halted the construction in March 2005 before the house was completed, and ordered Smereczynsky to remove it. The city cited a local ordinance that bans prefabricated homes in single-family subdivisions.

Smereczynsky asked the city to rezone the property to allow him to complete the assembly of the modular home, which was built in a North Carolina factory. When officials denied his request, Smereczynsky took the city to court.
