Amid legal threats, committee backs away from mobile home rent control
Surrounded by legal threats on all sides, Mountain View’s Rental Housing Committee on Monday backed away from plans to bring the city’s mobile home residents under the aegis of rent control.
The decision was a reversal of last month’s meeting when rental committee members acquiesced to the advice of their attorneys to begin drafting new regulations for mobile homes.
The Monday, Jan 22, meeting was intended to lay out the policy framework and process for extending rent control to about 1,100 mobile homes in Mountain View under the voter-approved Community Stabilization and Fair Rent Act (CSFRA).
But the committee declined to take that step.
