Thursday, May 4
9:30 a.m. – Noon
Boise/Ada County Homeless Coalition
Special Planning Meeting on Tiny House Villages in Boise
Cathedral of the Rockies
711 N. 11th St., Boise

Former Idaho State Sen. Nicole LeFavour is gathering input to develop a new code and separate section of the Planning and Zoning Code to establish and regulate tiny homes and small provisional housing structures operated by non-profit organizations to serve people who meet certain criteria, including that they face homelessness or are at risk of homelessness. This code would include villages comprised of tiny houses and community facilities to serve the homeless population.
LeFavour considers this approach a way to solve the impasse with the Boise and Planning & Zoning officials that has prevented resolution of the ongoing problem of housing for people who don’t have it. She says she is optimistic that creating a new code section for temporary housing may help alleviate many of the city's concerns. She has offered to write the code and to help the Boise City Council toward final adoption.
