OASIS – Today, 18 families have found better housing and living conditions as they moved into some of the 107 brand new homes to be built this year in the final phase of construction of Mountain View Estates.
Mountain View Estates is located in the eastern Coachella Valley agricultural community of Oasis, at 68-990 Harrison St.
During the pandemic, Riverside County has received state and federal support to fully build out the mobile home park, which has clean water, sewer and electric infrastructure and paved roads, as well as amenities that include a community center, playground, community services, and bus routes. The 107-home expansion will move families out of substandard or dilapidated mobile homes and unpermitted mobile home parks lacking basic infrastructure.
“This is a major victory and it is life changing for farmworker and service worker families to be able to move from unsafe conditions into a beautiful mobile home and have decent housing and a better quality of life,” said Supervisor V. Manuel Perez. “Dilapidated and substandard housing conditions has been an issue for many years in the eastern Coachella Valley. Today is a bright spot in our county’s efforts and partnerships towards developing quality, affordable and safe housing.”
The builder of Mountain View Estates, Desert Empire Homes, is working to get mobile homes installed. The Phase 3 expansion will fully build out Mountain View Estates, with 107 mobile homes out of 398 total. The first 40 homes are being added, with an additional 67 to come by the middle part of the year.
Supervisor Perez will visit Mountain View Estates at 10 a.m. tomorrow (Saturday). For interviews with Supervisor Perez and families, contact Supervisor Perez’s office by reply email.
Applications for the new mobile homes are currently being accepted by county housing staff and can be found at: https://www.harivco.org/Resources/MtViewEstatesProjectHomekeyApplications/tabid/242/Default.aspx
