Mobile Home Park Review Board
The City of Vista has established a program of contractual obligations, known as the City of Vista "Don Olmstead" Mobile Home Park Accord Program, with owners of privately held mobile home parks within the City to encourage equitable treatment, fair dealing and an alternative "model lease agreement" between the owners and their tenants. Under the Accord agreements, the City Council has agreed to establish a "citizen review panel" to receive complaints from residents and owners regarding alleged violations of the Accord, and to seek to resolve such disputes. The function of this Board is to provide a forum for hearing and investigating complaints from residents and owners regarding relationships and conditions in all mobile home parks in the City of Vista and to provide a means for resolving such complaints and disputes. The powers and duties of the Mobile Home Park Review Board are set forth in Chapter 2.76 of the Vista Municipal Code.
This Board consists of three members who each serve a three-year term. Redevelopment and Housing Manager Jeff Zinner is the Staff Liaison, and Mayor Ritter is the Council Liaison.
Qualifications for membership:
- Resident of the City of Vista.
- 18 years of age.
- Shall not have any property, financial or economic interest as an owner, lessee, or tenant in any mobile home park.
