To protect ‘vulnerable’ residents, LA County leaders steer closer to rent control for mobile home parks
In what they called another step to prevent evictions and homelessness, the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors voted Tuesday to draft an ordinance that, if passed, will control rents from rising at mobile home parks.
The Board voted 4 to 1 on a motion authored by Supervisors Janice Hahn and Sheila Keuhl. It asks the county how best to regulate rent increases for mobile home parks in the unincorporated areas of Los Angeles County. If passed later this year, the ordinance would affect some 86 mobile home parks and a total of 8,503 mobile home units. Supervisor Kathryn Barger voted no, saying she thought it was worth exploring reasons why rents were rising and to look at updated conditional-use permits.
