The 1441 Manufactured-Home Residents Association pushed hard for the mobilehome rent stabilization ordinance being put in place by the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors. Today, the meeting will organize opinions and ideas from passed round-table meetings for drafting the ordinance. It will be held in conjunction with the LA County Department of Consumer and Business Affairs (DCBA).
In the last election, Prop 10, proposing to return rent control powers to local municipalities, was opposed with 62% of voters opposing the initiative. The passing or opposing of this proposition doesn’t affect mobilehome parks at all, but Prop 10’s failure darkens the hope for Los Angeles to eliminate homelessness.
The MRA1441 started pushing for rent stabilization in mobilehome parks for over 5 years with the purpose of opposing unjust laws and the monopolistic powers of park owners. Earlier this year, the LA County Board of Supervisors passed an interim rent stabilization ordinance while they are considering enacting a permanent ordinance, giving hope to bringing protection to affordable housing in Los Angeles.
