SUBJECT:
Title
UPDATE ON MOBILEHOME ZONING ORDINANCE AMENDMENT (CITY COUNCIL)

Body
I. SUMMARY

This item was requested by Councilmember Jim Dear. In 2018, in connection with the adoption of the City's Charter, the City Council commenced a process of considering a mobilehome park zone (see section 207(B)(10) of the Charter). With the backdrop of numerous anticipated possible closures of mobilehome parks within the City of Carson and the affordable housing crisis faced in the state, in or about early 2019, the City Council considered ways to preserve mobilehome parks within the City of Carson and directed staff to pursue avenues to adopt zone changes that will allow for effective preservation of the parks. The City Council directed staff to work on this issue as part of the General Plan update.
The General Plan is almost at completion and will imminently be presented to the Planning Commission and the City Council. Staff has commenced working on the necessary zone changes and expects to bring proposed ordinances to the Planning Commission for its consideration soon, likely within the next few months.

II. RECOMMENDATION
Recommendation

RECEIVE and FILE.


Body
III. ALTERNATIVES
