Tiny Homes Village Planned in St. Louis
The city of St. Louis is planning a tiny village to shelter the city's homeless, according to a recent announcement by Mayor Lyda Krewson.
"The city plans to lease property for the community at 900 N. Jefferson Avenue on the edge of Downtown West, the site of the former St. Louis RV Park," reports Erin Hefferman.
"The site is about a mile from two of the city's other major resources for the homeless, the city-owned Biddle House men's shelter and the homeless services agency known as the St. Patrick Center," adds Hefferman.
The mayor will request funding for the village from a portion of the $64 million the city received earlier this spring in federal CARES Act funding.
