Jack Galvin Accord

The City of Ontario has more than 2,100 mobile homes, which provide affordable market rate housing for lower income families, seniors, and individuals. In 1990, the City Council adopted an ordinance to regulate mobile home space rents but later repealed that ordinance per state law. Subsequently, in working with mobile home park owners and tenants, the City drafted the Jack Galvin Mobile Home Park Accord, which was accepted by park owners. The accord places limits on the allowable increases based on the Consumer Price Index; allows for additional adjustments for changes utilities, taxes, and capital improvements; provides a process for requesting rent reductions for service reductions; and allows for rent adjustments for resale. The term of the agreement was adopted in 1999, and per extensions continues in effect today. The City will continue to implement and enforce this ordinance.
