EXCHANGE-TINY-HOUSE VILLAGES

SEATTLE _ When Seattle began permitting homeless tent camps in 2015, they were truly camps, almost entirely tents, and fairly easy to pick up and move. That’s not the case today. The tents have mostly been replaced by tiny houses with heat, and the camps usually have trailers with bathrooms connected to water and sewage. There’s Wi-Fi in many of them. Moving them is more expensive, and when a tiny-house village moves to another neighborhood, the new neighbors often have concerns about safety. By Scott Greenstone, The Seattle Times.
