Madison Wisconsin has changed its zoning laws to allow tents and tiny houses on property owned by churches and other non-profit organizations. The groups would need to have a management plan for sleeping areas, restrooms and parking, under the amendment.
Occupy Madison’s “OM Build” initiative to create a sustainable village of “tiny homes” for the homeless is credited with building support for the changes in the Madison city ordinances. The new housing model for the homeless is being developed in other cities as well, including Austin, Tex., where Community First Village, a decade in the making, soon will break ground.
