No. As part of the General Plan Update, staff and the consultant team proposed to update the land use designations in the General Plan to reduce the number of designations and to make them more consistent with current naming conventions. As part of this, the “Mobile Home Park” designation was initially proposed to be combined with the “Medium Density Residential” designation (which would have included mobile home parks). This proposal caused a significant amount of concern among mobile home park residents. One major concern is that changing the designation would make it easier for mobile home park owners to close or convert the park to another use.
While staff believes that adequate State regulations are in place to address potential closure or conversion of a mobile home park to another use, it is recognized that having a specific Mobile Home Park land use designation could provide an added layer of protection. In response to the level of concern expressed by mobile home park residents, and because the change was being proposed for administrative purposes rather than a policy-driven matter, staff is recommending that the Mobile Home Park General Plan Land Use Designation not be changed and retained in the 2040 General Plan and applied to all existing mobile home parks.
