(A) No person shall cause development to occur within any portion of a manufactured home park until the plans for the development have been submitted to and reviewed and approved by the manufactured homes commission. This division does not require that plans be submitted to the commission for approval for the replacement of manufactured or mobile homes on previously approved lots in a manufactured home park when no development is to occur in connection with the replacement. Within thirty days after receipt of the plans, all supporting documents and materials required to complete the review, and the applicable plan review fee established under division (D) of this section, the commission shall approve or disapprove the plans.
(B) Any person aggrieved by the commission's disapproval of a set of plans under division (A) of this section may request a hearing on the matter within thirty days after receipt of the commission's notice of the disapproval. The hearing shall be held in accordance with Chapter 119. of the Revised Code. Thereafter, the disapproval may be appealed in the manner provided in section 119.12 of the Revised Code.
