This committee was created to investigate the various issues concerning mobile home park ownership and residency. The committee will make recommendations to City Council in an attempt to seek resolve to disputes in a fair and equitable manner to all parties involved.
In October of 1993, the Mobile Home Review Board was established, which later in July of 1996, became the Mobile Home Advisory Board (MHAB). The purpose of the MHAB is to ensure the quality of life in mobile home parks and to review matters concerning mobile home parks in the City of Huntington Beach through healthy communication with park owners, manufactured home owners, and the City Council. The MHAB consists of nine members: three (3) Huntington Beach mobile home park owners or their designated nominees (who may or may not reside in Huntington Beach); three (3) Huntington Beach mobile home resident owners; and three (3) Huntington Beach independent citizens-at-large who have no affiliation or relationship with mobile home parks. Members serve a maximum of two, four-year terms.
In order to provide a forum for communication between park owners and park residents, a time for public comments is scheduled at the beginning and concluding portions of each meeting. Additionally, the MHAB was directed to recruit members from the business, public and non-profit community to speak on matters affecting mobile home park owners and residents. The choice and content of the information to be presented is to be especially relevant for owners and residents of mobile home parks within Huntington Beach.
The MHAB holds regular quarterly meetings, generally on the fourth Monday in January, April, July, and October at 6:00 PM in B-8 of the lower level of City Hall with special meetings scheduled as needed. The Agenda is posted 72 hours prior to each meeting. All meetings are open to the public and special meetings may be called in conformance with the Ralph M. Brown Act. Citizens can send written correspondence to the staff liaison who will coordinate responses. Every effort will be made to respond in writing to those individuals who submit proposals or written comments within fifteen working days where practical.
In the event a member retires or is unable to compete his term, an appointment shall be made to fill the remainder of the unexpired term. To apply to become a member, please fill out the Boards & Commission Application.
