Mobile home residents seek rent control

Several Highland mobile home residents asking for “rent stabilization” during the March 26 City Council meeting learned that should the city pass such an ordinance California law exempts their long-term mobile home leases from the rent control.

During the last City Council meeting, several Highland mobile home residents took the public comment opportunity to voice complaints about conditions and rising costs at their mobile home parks asking the council to consider placing a rent control ordinance on a future meeting agenda.

Lawsuit challenges wording of St. Helena rent stabilization measure

ST. HELENA — A lawsuit is challenging the wording of a June 4 ballot measure that will determine the fate of rent stabilization at St. Helena’s only mobile home park.

Tom Vence, a Vineyard Valley Mobile Home Park resident who described himself last October as the park’s weekend manager, filed suit in Napa County Superior Court on March 25. His suit claims that the City Council’s agreed-upon ballot language for Measure F violates state laws requiring ballot questions to be truthful and impartial.

Arcata City Council directs halt of mobile home park closure and conversion

The Arcata City Council directed city staff to research the possibility of placing a temporary ban on the closure and conversion of mobile home parks to a different use Wednesday night.

A ban on closing and converting mobile home parks for other use would allow time for the city to create zoning that would protect mobile home park residents from the threat of eviction. Once a zoning type for mobile home parks is in place, securing land use for mobile home parks alone, the city could then create an ordinance according to these zoning protections.
