And when can we expect this idea
I was wondering that myself Dave! You from Seaside?
I do not think this social experiment will last long.
What about the taxpayer that paid for the public lands to be used ?
What about those individuals and businesses that will share the area with the homeless camps ?
The reasons causing the homelessness are the root cause of the problem.
The reasons for homelessness are diverse – there is no one size fits all solution, so ideas like this are worth trying.
Portland specifically has a lot of experience with tiny houses for the homeless via Dignity Village. So for them this is more like an expansion of something that is already working. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dignity_Village
I just hope they forget about the conventional-looking, stupid blobby shrubbery and useless lawns depicted in the image above and plant some edibles instead.
I am retired and living on a very fixed income. I paid taxes for many, many years. If I wanted one of these cute little houses (and I do), I would have to pay at least $100,000. No fair, liberal Portland.
Please send me as much information as possible I was homeless in the past and have begun to for a not for profit organization to fight homelessness and I love this concept to peices!!!
