Harrisburg, the Capital of Pennsylvania has introduced plans to build a tiny house village for homeless veterans and if they do it, look for other cities across the Commonwealth to begin building tiny house villages for not only homes vets but for all homeless people.
Veterans Outreach of Pennsylvania plans to build the 15-unit village on a 20-acre vacant lot just south of the PennDOT building at 1101 S. Front Street.
The property is bordered to the south by Paxton Creek, railroad tracks to the east and the Susquehanna River to the west. A portion of the Capital Area Greenbelt runs through the property.
The 12-by-14 foot detached houses would contain the basic necessities — a sleeping area, a half bath, a desk, a small sitting space, etc. A 6,000-square-foot community center would have meeting space, a dining area, activity rooms, a laundry, and other amenities. There will be 15 parking spaces to serve the village.
