‘Gimme Shelter’: Who’s watching California’s mobile home parks


Some of the most affordable housing in California is found in mobile home parks. Residents there pay about half the monthly housing costs of those living in single-family homes in the state, according to census data.

But California’s approach to monitoring mobile home parks is full of loopholes, a new story by CalMatters’ Manuela Tobías finds. That has led to deplorable conditions for some residents, including those who live surrounded by sewage for months at a park outside Stockton.

In this episode of “Gimme Shelter: The California Housing Crisis Podcast”, we talked about Tobias article about the state’s limited enforcement of mobile home park issues throughout the state.

This is also Tobías’ final episode with “Gimme Shelter” as he leaves to pursue journalism in his native Argentina. The Times and CalMatters hope to resume the podcast with a new co-host after a brief hiatus.

give me shelter”, a biweekly podcast that looks at why California is so expensive to live and what the state can do about it, features Liam Dillon, who covers housing affordability for the Los Angeles Times, and Manuela Tobías, housing reporter for CalMatters.
