    A home at the Winchester Mobile Home Park in San Jose. (Aug. 11, 2015).

    The San Jose City Council on Tuesday voted unanimously in favor of a six-month moratorium on closing mobile home parks.

    The decision grants city officials the time to revise an outdated ordinance that governs such closures.

    Developers have been snatching up mobile home parks so they can build market-rate homes.

    Mobile home parks and their closures are particularly concerning in San Jose because it houses 59 such parks – more than any other city in California.
