15-Tiny-Home Community for Homeless Proposed in Eugene, Oregon

aaa

Some people dream of sparkling granite countertops, spacious pantries and glossy whirlpool tubs set next to enormous showers tricked out with the latest technology.

Rhonda would just like a bathroom, and Emerald Village Eugene (EVE), a new proposed village of tiny houses, could give her that along with the stability she and others need to get back on their feet. Currently, she lives in Opportunity Village Eugene, but because subsidized, low-income housing is difficult to find, she and her husband need another transitional step — which is where EVE comes in.

    I AM A PHOTOGRAPH FANATIC, I WISH WE COULD HAVE SOME VIEW OF THE INTERIOR OF THESE UNITS. THE CONCEPT IS BEYOND WORDS, AND SHOULD BE CONSIDERED EVERYWHERE. JUST TO GIVE SOMEONE AN IDEA OF HOW BAD POVERTY HAS BECOME, IN THE STATE OF GEORGIA (FULTON COUNTY), THE WAITING LIST FOR SECTION 8 HOUSING HAS BECOME SO SATURATED, THAT A WAITING LIST NO LONGER EXISTS. OREGON HAS THE RIGHT IDEA, LET US SEE OTHER STATES FOLLOW THE SAME PATTERN AND EXAMPLE. THANK YOU FOR PRESENTING THIS POST.

    Same on Maui and Big Island; no sign up for HUD. My companera and I were fortunate enough to get into low income Senior Housing, but that was after a 3 year waiting period. I don’t know how seniors are going to make it in the US anymore. Even AARP keeps prattling on about needing 1 mil in order to retire. So, we don’t need another war, build another “mine’s bigger than yours” government building, or a bijillion dollar “feasibility study” for running a tunnel clear through the Rocky Mountains (not unless it will actually provide adequate water for 1/2 the US. Fat chance). The cost of even obtaining permission to build a home on Maui is so high that most people are defeated before they even start.

    The title of this article needs editing. Nowhere in the original article referenced is the city of Portland, OR, mentioned. The original article publisher and the small home communities described therein are located in Eugene, OR, not PDX.
