But just this past week, town leaders put a four-month moratorium on mobile homes.
Kenly needs the kind of affordable housing provided by mobile homes, town leaders said, because the average household income in Kenly is about $20,000.
But many of the mobile homes are run down; Johnston County has condemned 14 of them in the past two weeks, leaders said.
So over the next four months, Kenly will not allow any mobile homes in the town as leaders study zoning rules, town officials said.
