Tiny Home Village Education Outreach and Forum Scheduled

03/30/2017

The community is invited to an educational forum that will discuss and explore information about the planning and development of a tiny home village. A series of educational forums will take place over the next few months.

The first educational forum is scheduled for:

Monday, April 3

5:30 – 7 p.m.

South Valley Multi-Purpose Senior Center

2008 Larrazolo Road SW

A special presentation by guest speaker Tracy Sharp, executive director of Saranam LLC, will share that organization’s mission of empowering individuals to end their homelessness and poverty through housing, education, and the support of the community.

Saranam’s emphasis on community building and their self-development curriculum echo the priorities of the tiny home village project being developed by Bernalillo County and the City of Albuquerque.

Coordinating volunteer efforts and providing a project update are also on the forum’s agenda.

Currently, BernCo is developing the Request for Proposal that will identify the scope of services, selection criteria and a project timeline for an organization that would oversee the planning and development of the tiny home village site and operations project.

Last November, voters approved a $2 million general obligation bond to fund the development of the tiny home village project.
