Mobile Home Program

Keeping Mobile Home Rents Affordable

The City Council adopted a Mobilehome Park Space Stabilization Program (Ordinance 1949 N.C.S) in 1993 to help stabilize rents for Petaluma mobile home owners, who tend to be low-income seniors.

Under the ordinance, mobile home park rent increases are only allowed to take place on an annual basis. Furthermore, the increases cannot exceed the rate of inflation.

Read the ordinance online or download a copy to learn how and why the ordinance was adopted, as well as what the program entails.

If you have any questions, regarding Petaluma’s Mobile Home Rent Stabilization Program you can contact the Housing Division at 707-778-4555.

The California Department of Housing and Community Development can also answer any questions you might have regarding your rights as a mobile home park resident.  The Mobilehome Residency Law (MRL) is enforced by the courts and can be found here on the State's Housing and Community Development Department website.
