Mobile home parks struggling to come back
Gaps in government and private response caused delays

The story of the parks is important because the wholesale destruction has revealed gaps in the public and private response to disasters in mobile home parks, according to interviews with owners and state and local officials and public records. Most owners had vastly inadequate insurance and might not be able to cover the costs of repairs. Confusion about jurisdiction over the parks — including among government officials themselves — has led to delays and frustrations.

Long Beach City Council decides against seeking a local law to protect mobile-home residents from rent hikes
The decision brought an end to the months-long debate over whether tenant protections that had been enshrined in local and state laws should be extended to people living in mobile homes.

A local law governing rent hikes in mobile home parks won’t be coming to Long Beach any time soon.

The City Council voted unanimously at its Tuesday, Dec. 10, meeting to receive a report on the concept without directing city staff to create a potential ordinance or prohibition on rent increases in mobile home parks.

The decision brought an end to the months-long debate over whether tenant protections that had been enshrined in local and state laws should be extended to people living in mobile homes.
