Three dozen "tiny homes" would be built for — and with the help of — teens aging out of foster care, under a plan that advanced Monday at City Hall.
As many as 36 tiny homes would be built near E. Capitol Drive and N. Humboldt Blvd. through a partnership with developer Gorman & Co., Pathfinders Milwaukee Inc. and the Milwaukee County Housing Division.
The City Plan Commission on Monday unanimously approved rezoning the land for the project.
The tiny homes would be built on land west of the Milwaukee River owned by the Milwaukee Area Technical College on N. Humboldt Blvd. They would provide housing for young people ages 18 to 25, especially those who are homeless or at risk of being homeless.
