July 11, 2017
On February 23, 2016, the City Council directed the Housing Department to continue to explore the Opt-In/Stay-In-Business concept with mobilehome park owners and residents. The Opt-In/Stay-In-Business concept contemplates financial incentives for MHP owners in exchange for a binding agreement to "stay in business," continuing to operating existing MHPs for a defined period of time. Over the last few months, the Housing Department has worked with an Advisory Committee consisting of mobilehome park residents and owners. The Department will host public and stakeholder meetings during Summer and Fall to share a revised concept and to gather input and concerns. The Department plans to provide a recommendation on this concept to the City Council's Community and Economic Committee meeting in November 2017.
Please see additional information.

A revised draft of the Mobilehome Park Closure Ordinance was presented on March 22, 2017 to the Planning Commission.
January 24, 2017
The City has an ordinance that covers mobilehome park conversions to other uses. The City Council asked staff to prepare an ordinance that applies to mobilehome parks that wish to close but do not intend to seek any entitlements or permits for redevelopment. If the City has no ordinance that applies to park closures, then closures can still occur under State Law provisions.
The Draft Discussion Mobilehome Park Closure Ordinance is now posted for your review.
