Regional Manufactured-home Owners Coalitions
- Coalitions are local-area manufactured-home owners’ groups. Some consider themselves allies of GSMOL.
- It is good for GSMOL members to get to know the GSMOL-allied Coalition in their area, if any.
- GSMOL leaders may seek to build a Coalition in a particular area, especially if there is a particular goal to achieve, such as the enactment of a Rent Stabilization Ordinance.
- The range of a coalition might be a city, a county, or anything in between.
- Some coalitions consider their “members” to be HOAs and/or GSMOL Chapters in parks; others have individuals as members.
- Coalitions can fill in the “middle layer” between the statewide GSMOL and the GSMOL chapters in parks. They often work on community projects that bring together homeowners from all the parks they represent.
