WATSONVILLE — The city of Watsonville is moving forward with new zoning protections for its mobile and manufactured homes, the latest step in an ongoing effort to ensure an adequate supply of affordable housing for low-income residents.
Under the new rules, each of Watsonville’s nine mobile home parks would be protected from development unless a special use permit is granted for a narrow range of other high-priority land uses, such as churches, cemeteries, child care centers and schools.
A total of 919 mobile and manufactured homes would fall under the protections, according to city staff.
