Barger Calls for Review of Mobile Home Ownership as Part of Affordable Housing Effort

Posted on: 09/12/2018 00:00

LOS ANGELES COUNTY –Today, the Board of Supervisors unanimously approved a motion by Supervisor Kathryn Barger to develop a plan that includes mobile home parks in the effort to increase affordable housing stock for county residents. 

“One of the core issues with mobile home park ownership is the high interest rate they pay for their coach ownership – which is typically between 9 and 10 percent,” said Supervisor Barger.  “This creates a hurdle for those wishing to purchase a mobile home and enter into home ownership. I want to explore the potential of employing effective private/public partnerships we already use for single family and affordable housing development.”

The County’s Community Development Commission has 120 days to present their findings to the Board.
