Residents of the Royal Highlands subdivision have scheduled a public meeting for Sunday to discuss concerns about modular homes being placed among conventional site-built homes. The meeting, sponsored by the Royal Highlands Action Committee, will be at the Best Western Resort Weeki Wachee on Commercial Way from 1 to 3 p.m. Assistant County Attorney Kent Weissinger and a representative of state Sen. Ginny Brown-Waite (R-Brooksville) have been invited to attend, said Terry Ovsnianik, a Royal Highlands resident. Ovsnianik and her neighbors worry that an influx of modular homes _ which can look similar to mobile homes _ could depress property values. The County Commission is looking at the issue, but its options are limited by a state law forbidding discrimination against modulars.
The Rev. Marciano G. Martin is pastor of St. Joan of Arc Catholic Church in Spring Hill. His title was listed incorrectly in an Aug. 7 story about church building programs.
