Online Forum Discussion: From Self-Organized Camps to Tiny House Co-Op Villages
January 27, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pmFree – $50
This is a special online forum with guests from SquareOne Villages, whose mission is to “create self-managed communities of cost-effective tiny homes for people in need of housing.”
“Since its founding in 2012, SquareOne has developed three villages in Lane County, Oregon — Opportunity, Emerald, and Cottage Grove Villages — and has multiple additional projects in progress. The Village Model developed by Square One, with support from Portland-based Meyer Memorial Trust, puts forth a collaborative, community-based approach to building and sustaining stable, permanently affordable places to call home. Two important components of the model are a community land trust to ensure the property is permanently affordable, and a limited-equity cooperative that owns the buildings and allows residents to become co-governing members and joint owners.”
The forum will feature:
Andrew Heben, Co-founder and Project Director, SquareOne Villages and author of Tent City Urbanism: From Self-organized Camps to Tiny House Villages
Jeff Albanese, Program Director, SquareOne Villages
This forum will be co-hosted by Tim McCormick – moderator of PDX Shelter Forum and Village Collaborative, and editor of HousingWiki – who was recently featured along with our guest Andrew Heben in an interview by Thacher Schmid on villages.
