Tiny Home Village Project First Community Meeting Scheduled for Aug. 9

08/08/2018

Members of the public are invited to attend one of three scheduled public meetings to learn more about the tiny home village project and the proposed locations.

Community meetings dates, times and locations:

  • Thursday, Aug. 9, 6 p.m., Manzano Mesa Multigenerational Center, 501 Elizabeth St. SE
  • Thursday, Aug. 16, 6 p.m., African American Performing Arts Center, 310 San Pedro Dr. NE (on Expo New Mexico Fairgrounds)
  • Saturday, Aug. 18, 10 a.m., Patrick J. Baca Library, 8081 Central Ave. NW

 

More than 30 sites have been suggested to Bernalillo County for the first tiny home village in the Albuquerque community. Carefully developed criteria helped narrow down the list to the following:

  • 8207 Central Ave. NW (Central & Unser)
  • 202-230 Louisiana Blvd. NE (Louisiana & Domingo)
  • 7600 Southern Ave. SE (Southern & Española)
  • 540 Paisano St. NE (Juan Tabo & Paisano)
  • 12900 Central Ave. SE (Central & Western Skies)
  • 12910 Central Ave. SE (Central & Western Skies)

 

No final decision has been made on a site, and consideration may be given to other sites if they are put forward.

The concept for the Tiny Home Village is as follows:

  • The village will be gated, completely self-contained and actively managed with oversight from Bernalillo County.
  • The village will consist of small homes constructed on chassis for cost-efficiency and portability.
  • Each home will have heating and cooling, electricity, a bed, storage, a desk and a chair.
  • Communal buildings will include restrooms, a kitchen, a laundry and meeting/training spaces.
  • The village will be designed for single adults or couples and veterans, with most residents expected to live there for approximately two years.
  • Residents will be carefully screened, and required to follow strict rules as well as contribute to the community monetarily and through assigned duties.
  • The village will provide life and work skills, support for employment and possibly a microenterprise.

After taking public comment into consideration, cost and other factors, a site will be selected. BernCo will work with nearby neighborhoods to develop a site plan and construction timetable.

In November 2016, voters approved $2 million in bond funding for planning and construction of a tiny home village.
