"This report was prepared by graduate students in the Department of Urban and Regional Planning at the University at Buffalo, as the assignment in "practicum" (sometimes called studio) course required for the Master of Urban Planning degree. Professor Ernest Sternberg was our instructor. "

"Our practicum's main objective has been to provide experience in preparing a professional report that can potentially be acted upon by interested parties for public benefit. While we are aware that manufactured housing may only be appropriate for certain cities with an abundance of vacant land, we hope that this report can serve as a resource guide that can help those cities implement manufactured housing as one potential solution to sever problems of housing affordability."
