Can Colorado Keep Mobile Home Affordable?

Heather Malone holds her daughter Caoimhe, 4, outside their home in the Golden Hills Park for Mobile Homes in Golden on March 9, 2022. Heather and her family have lived at Golden Hills for almost a decade. Colorado lawmakers recently introduced a bill that would add greater protections to mobile home residents throughout the state. The biggest piece of the proposed bill is rent stabilization, which would cap how much mobile home park owners could increase rent per year. Malone, who has three children, is worried that another rent hike would force them out of Golden altogether. Her rent went from $550 per month to $796.
