Boulder’s Mobile Home Parks 

Boulder is home to around 1,200 mobile (built prior to 1976) and manufactured homes (built in 1976 or later) located in four mobile home parks, including: 

  • Boulder Meadows 
  • Mapleton 
  • Orchard Grove
  • Vista Village 
  • Ponderosa

There are four additional communities located beyond the city limits, but eligible for annexation, including: Columbine, San Lazaro and Table Mesa Village. 

Mobile Home Zoning & Manufactured Housing Land Use 
Demonstrating the City’s commitment to preserve these communities, in 1985, Boulder became one of the first communities in the nation to establish Mobile Home zoning. This was followed in 2000, by the introduction of the Manufactured Housing (MH) land use to “signal the city’s intent to preserve the affordable housing provided by the existing mobile home parks,” given the market pressures for them to redevelop.

Policy & Projects 

Ordinance No. 8043: Mobile Homes pdf

B.R.C., 1981 Chapter 10-12: Mobile Homes   

BVCP Policy 7.08: Preservation & Development of Manufactured Housing pdf   
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.
