MUNCIE, Ind. (AP): A nonprofit organization wants to build a village of six tiny houses for the homeless in Muncie.
Project planners from Bridges Community Services are seeking permission from a city zoning board for the micro-village. The (Muncie) Star Press reports the houses would measure 96 square feet each and have a bed, two windows, a desk and a loft storage area.
The project would also have a brick walkway, a community garden and a building that has showers, restrooms and kitchen facilities.
Bridges director Susie Kemp says the village would be a place for people “to become comfortable until they get used to more societal living than they’re used to.”
