Tiny Home Village Will Most Likely Move to Globeville

The Beloved Community Village, a collection of eleven tiny homes in RiNo occupied by formerly homeless residents, has been looking for a new host site ever since last September, when Denver's Department of Public Works rejected a plan for the village to relocate to Zeppelin's TAXI campus, citing concerns over flooding. The organization behind the tiny homes — the Colorado Village Collaborative — was taken by surprise, having already drawn up site plans for the move to TAXI. The group had also promised the Urban Land Conservancy (ULC), the owners of the land the village currently occupies at 38th and Blake streets, that it would vacate that premises by January 1 so that the ULC could break ground on a new apartment complex.

Organizers behind the tiny home village had to scramble to find a new site, though the ULC did agree to extend its deadline to vacate the RiNo site to March 1. And it now appears that the tiny home village will be able to meet the new deadline. On February 5, Denver City Council's Finance and Governance Subcommittee will consider a site plan submitted by Colorado Village Collaborative that calls for the village to be relocated to a parcel of city-owned land that's bound by Washington Street, Pearl Street and 44th Avenue in Globeville.
