San Jose leaders on Thursday promised expanded protections to
hundreds of Westwinds Mobile Park residents caught in a property
dispute and threatened with eviction.

Mayor Sam Liccardo and Councilmember Lan Diep announced a new
citywide proposal that would give greater leverage to mobile home
owners whose parks are facing redevelopment.

The new proposal creates a “mobile home park” designation,
and would require much higher review standards for redevelopment of
the communities. Any new projects would also require city council
approval.

“We are absolutely committed to doing everything we can to
protect our residents,” Liccardo said at a briefing at Westwinds.
The council is expected to act on the measure within weeks, he
said.
