Manufactured Housing Strategy

 

 

Background

Almost 1300 households live in Boulder’s four manufactured housing communities, which provide a lifestyle valued by their residents at a relatively affordable cost. The city has committed to preserving this housing option and has taken many supportive actions. The manufactured housing strategy will define, organize and prioritize a long-term approach to supporting these communities. On Feb. 26, 2019, City Council reviewed on the  project pdf and directed pdf staff to develop potential work plan items. Additional background information may be found in a 2015 Study Session memo  and a 2016 Mobile Home Park Infrastructure Study. pdf

Project Goal

By the middle of 2019 the city hopes to adopt a manufactured housing strategy that identifies guiding principles and a prioritized list of actions by the city, park residents and park owners to further Boulder Valley Comprehensive Plan (BVCP) policies. 

Recognizing the importance of manufactured housing as an option for many households, the city and county will encourage the preservation of existing mobile home parks and the development of new manufactured home parks, including increasing opportunities for resident-owned parks. If an existing mobile home park is found to have health or safety issues, every reasonable effort will be made to reduce or eliminate the issues, when feasible, or to help mitigate for the loss of housing through re-housing of affected households.

Community Engagement

Please share your thoughts by taking a short survey either in español or English.  All responses will be added to other public input and considered for inclusion in the strategy.
