Communify the East Bay! The Case for Tiny Home Ecovillages

TinyVillage.png

It's as easy as 1-2-3.

1) Reduce Greenhouse Gases,

2) Increase Affordable Housing,

3) Improve Disaster Resilience.

These three statewide policy priorities create a path for legalizing tiny homes and ecovillages. Model examples are already in place in Oregon, Washington, and elsewhere. Ten years from now, we want to see intentional resident-led communities covering the Bay Area and providing affordable, safe, healthy, and housing options for all.

Calling all practical visionaries and communitarians -- the time is NOW! Let's crowdsource the political will to make it possible. Join the discussion 12/10!
