MOUNTAIN VIEW — Rents in the city’s mobile home parks could soon go under rent control after the city council signaled its support for expediting a new law, a move that would affect the city’s six mobile home parks where its more than 1,100 residents have long complained about burdensome rent increases.

During a recent goals-setting meeting, the city council agreed that rent control should be extended to mobile homes. The council’s decision could end a years-long battle between renters and mobile home park owners over acceptable rent increases in the Bay Area’s expensive rental market.
