Do you want LEGAL tiny house community in Kitchener???
Well you are not alone! In May of 2016 I was contacted by a person who works for the City of Kitchener, she let me know that this city REALLY WANTS a tiny house community to be developed. Over a hundred comments came in from people who want to make this happen. We even had a potential investor and this fell through because no developer came forward. While I am NOT a developer and I sure as heck don’t have money to purchase a 600K property, get it zoned, developed and so on… I certainly want to have one of these communities in this area and I would purchase a lot and build there!
Now it has been about two years and nothing is happening!
I have 700,000 people who read this blog and I ask each of you to donate $5 or $10 or whatever you can afford… DO this IF you believe that there should be a legal place for tiny housers to live. For the cost of a Starbucks coffee you could be building a community. If you think you would want to (and can) live in this community let me know and I will be sure that whatever you donate will be considered a deposit for your lot.
What I envision is lots size would be 25×56 feet, houses would not be allowed to be larger than a 500 square foot, footprint, plus single garage. These houses would never be allowed to grow beyond 500 square feet. The lots would be privately owned but people would act as a collective corporation so that all services can be incorparated. In other words, water, sewer cable, wifi, electricity and the running of the central building, which would have guest rooms, laundry facilites and a large meeting room would be covered by a small condo fee of less than $100 a month. It would also cover snow and garden maintenance as well as the central building maintenance. Each house would be on the grid connected to the central system of the central house.
You do not have to want to live here, just to believe in this as a cause!
