Effort to Create Tiny Village for Homeless in Yakima Continues
A Yakima Group, Justice Housing Yakima continues a plan to open a tiny homes village called "Cottage Hill Village" to help area homeless. An informational meeting was held on Monday night for neighbors near the proposed site at 310 North Lewis Avenue, the former home of Bauer's Nursery near Milroy Park. The village would consist of 30 homes with a maximum of 50 people all 18 and over will be allowed to live on the property. At the meeting Monday night Justice Housing officials handed out informational packets with pledge envelopes as they try and raise money for the project that's been planned for more than 2 years in the area. Justice officials say they're still hoping to grant funding through the city or state. They hope the project can come together by the year 2020.
