On the 22nd of November 2019, California Governor Gavin Newsom signed an executive order that extends all orders and provisions contained in the governor’s proclamations dated October 11, October 25, and October 27, 2019. “Executive order N-21-19 shall remain in full force and effect.”
This executive order helps affected residents with housing needs by facilitating manufactured homes and mobilehome parks.
The order also helps with waiving fees to replace crucial documents such as driver’s licenses, vehicle titles, and birth and marriage certificates among others.
Here are the order’s points that pertain to the helping aid it covers:
- State statutes, rules, regulations and requirements set forth in the Mobilehome Parks Act (Health and Safety Code, section 18200, et seq., and Code of Regulations, title 25, section 1000 et seq.), the Special Occupancy Parks Act (Health and Safety Code, section 18860, et seq., and Code of Regulations, title 25, section 2000 et seq.), and the Manufactured Housing Act (Health and Safety Code, section 18000 et seq.) and regulations promulgated thereunder (Code of Regulations, title 25, section 4000 et seq., and 5510 et seq.) imposing or requiring fees, are suspended, as these laws pertain to disaster survivors and other residents in the counties identified in this Order, for two years from the date of this Order, to facilitate housing for those displaced by the significant wind event and wildfires described in this Order.
- The Department of Housing and Community Development and local enforcement agencies, including those with delegated disaster authority, shall jointly develop permitting, operating, and construction standards to maintain reasonable health and safety standards for the disaster survivors and other residents in the counties identified in this Order.

- Any local government zoning and land use ordinances in the counties identified in this Order, as authorized by the state statutes and regulations suspended by paragraphs 9 and 11 of this Order, that would preclude the placement and use of a manufactured home, mobilehome, or recreational vehicle on a private lot outside of a mobilehome park or special occupancy park for use during the reconstruction or repair of a home damaged or destroyed by the significant wind events and fires identified in this Order, are suspended for three years from the date of this Order for the individuals impacted by those events.
